"Today's terrorist attack in East Jerusalem is further painful evidence of the need to undertake serious efforts towards a sustainable peace agreement in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We express our heartfelt condolences to the victim's family. I expect all parties to act responsibly and show restraint, to not further inflame the already very tense situation. This is the only way to defeat the enemies of peace and guarantee security to all."
