And so one of my initial policy initiatives will be to work with our regional allies and our strategic partners towards a binding resolution towards the binding demilitarization of Gaza-strip in exchange for a very significant reconstruction process, a kind of mini Marshall-plan if you will. This with the aim of bringing quiet and tranquility to our border and Gaza for years to come," he said.
