· We support the status quo and we welcome all sides continuing their commitment to maintaining the status quo.

· We are encouraging both sides to not take any actions that would potentially escalate tensions.

· We continue to speak with the governments in the region to try to encourage a peace process. That peace process is supported by this State Department, also Mr. Greenblatt, Mr. Kushner, and we’d just encourage both sides to maintain the status quo.
