Powell Gives Nod to Middle East MonitorsDavid GollustState Department20 Jul 2001 16:36 UTC
U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell says he thinks third party monitors might be "very useful" in helping defuse the 1)confrontation between Israel and the Palestinians, though he says it is too early to say if the United States might take part in such an operation.
Mr. Powell's comments 2)reflect if not a change, at least 3)evolution, in the policy of the Bush administration, which originally had sided with Israel in strongly opposing the 4)insertion of outside monitors between the Middle East parties.
The Secretary of State spoke to reporters here after his return late Thursday from Rome and a meeting of foreign ministers of the Group of Seven industrial powers and Russia, who said in a joint statement "third party" monitors should help reinforce an Israeli-Palestinian 5)truce.
Mr. Powell said he believes such an observer force "might be very useful" during the cooling-off period that is supposed to 6)precede the two sides' 7)implementation of the peace 8)proposals of the U.S.-led Mitchell commission.
However the secretary made clear that the observers could not go in without the agreement of both parties: "To suggest that you can sort of impose monitoring on one side but not the other just doesn't make sense." Mr. Powell said. "So with the agreement of the parties, and if such an agreement can be reached, and as part of the Mitchell implementation, there could be a role for monitors the exact function they would perform and how they would work, is something we would have to work out."
Mr. Powell said the monitors need not be troops, but could be 9)civilian observers or representatives of the U.S.-led 10)trilateral security commission that has been seeking to bring into force the cease-fire negotiated last month by CIA director George Tenet.
He said decision on how the United States would 11)participate in monitoring if at all would not have to made until an actual cease-fire was in place.
Palestinian officials have welcomed the G-8 statement on monitors, while Israeli officials 12)reiterated their opposition to the idea and said they were pleased the ministers in Rome had stipulated that both Israel and the Palestinians should agree on the matter.
The peace plan of the commission led by former U.S. Senate majority leader George Mitchell 13)envisages third party monitoring of a six-week cooling off period by the parties. This would be followed by confidence building steps that would open the way to a renewal of talks on a final status peace agreement.
