Appointment of Tony Blair as the Quartet Representative

Statement by Secretary Condoleezza Rice
Washington, DC
June 27, 2007

I welcome Tony Blair’s appointment as the Quartet’s Representative to the Middle East. For the past decade, former Prime Minister Blair has been at the forefront of international efforts to promote peace and reconciliation around the world, from Northern Ireland to the Balkans and beyond. He is a renowned statesman, respected and listened to by the international community. He will bring tremendous dedication to efforts to create viable and lasting Palestinian government institutions, strengthen the Palestinian economy, and establish law and order for the Palestinian people. I look forward to working closely with him in his new capacity.
