The Palestinians have lost a leader who symbolised their aspirations of a Palestinian state. I wish to offer my deepest sympathy to the family of President Arafat and to the Palestinian people. The Commission wishes to express its continued commitment to a resolution of the Middle East conflict. The Commission is working with the Palestinian Authority towards this goal and towards ensuring a peaceful and democratic transition in the days and weeks to come."
