Special Envoy George Mitchell Remarks With Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu Before Meeting
Special Envoy Mitchell (Sept. 29): "We knew at the outset that the task would be difficult. We acknowledged that publicly and privately. We knew this would be a road with many bumps -- and there have been many bumps -- and that continues to this day. But we are not deterred. We are, to the contrary, determined more than ever to proceed to realize the common objective, which we all share, of a Middle East that is at peace with security and prosperity for the people of Israel, for Palestinians, and for all the people in the region. We will continue our efforts in that regard, undeterred and undaunted by the difficulties, the complexities or the bumps in the road."
