The United Nations supports Egyptian efforts to help defuse violence in the Gaza Strip, said UN Middle East envoy Robert Serry on Wednesday.

Briefing an open meeting of the UN Security Council, Serry, the UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, said that Egyptian efforts to achieve a calming of violence in and around Gaza are extremely important, and the United Nations strongly supports these efforts.

He also said that the reopening of crossings for humanitarian relief and commercial flows, with the presence of the Palestinian Authority, will also be crucial if any calm is to be sustained.

A calming and easing of the situation in and around Gaza is essential for genuine progress in both the Israel-Palestinian negotiations and in reuniting the West Bank and Gaza within the framework of the legitimate Palestinian Authority, he added.

Serry also stressed that progress must be intensified on the Annapolis track, both in the political negotiations and in action on the ground.
