Spanish FM: EU 'can and must make a greater effort' to reach ceasefire in Gaza
The Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo wrote to his European partners saying that the European Union "can and must make a greater effort" to reach a "sustainable" cease-fire between Palestinians and Israelis, said a source close to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Monday.


The minister, who had already denounced "the massacres in Gaza" and warned that the conflict "can spread to the entire region" and "is on the verge of exploding," expressed his concerns Friday to the head of European diplomacy Catherine Ashton, the source said.
