We welcome the declarations made at the Sharm al-Sheikh summit hosted by Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on 8 February 2005. The agreement by Prime Minister Sharon and President Abbas to end four years of violence is excellent news. We welcome both sides' affirmation of their commitment to the Roadmap and to the vision of a two state solution. We are committed to helping both sides in their efforts to escape the cycle of violence that has marked recent years and get back to the Roadmap.
