LONDON (AFP) - British Foreign Secretary William Hague said he will discuss an international push for a ceasefire in Gaza with US Secretary of State John Kerry and his German and French counterparts during talks in Vienna on Sunday.
Mr Hague said in a statement on Saturday that the discussions on ending the hostilities between Israel and Gaza would take place on the sidelines of talks on Iran's nuclear programme in the Austrian capital.
"It is clear that we need urgent, concerted international action to secure a ceasefire, as was the case in 2012" during the last round of conflict between Israel and militants in the Palestinian coastal enclave, Mr Hague said.
"I will discuss this with John Kerry, Laurent Fabius and Frank-Walter Steinmeier tomorrow (Sunday) in Vienna."
