Ambassador Rice: It is our desire to contribute in a very active and concerted way, along with other members of the international community, to respond effectively to those humanitarian needs. But what is required is a durable ceasefire and we will work diplomatically and through other means to try to support efforts to ensure that the ceasefire is lasting and in that context for border crossings to open and be available for humanitarian as well as day-to-day economic development imperatives.
