SHOTLIST:AP TELEVISION - AP CLIENTS ONLYParis, France - July 26, 2014++SOUNDBITES SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++1. SOUNDBITE (English) John Kerry, US Secretary of State John Kerry: "I understand that Israel can't have a ceasefire in which they are not able to, that somehow the tunnels are never going to be dealt with. The tunnels have to be dealt with. We understand that. We're working at that. By the same token, the Palestinians can't have a ceasefire in which they think the status quo is going to stay and they are not going to have the ability to be able to begin to live and breathe more freely and move within the crossings and begin to have goods and services that come in from outside. These are important considerations."2. SOUNDBITE (english) John Kerry, US Secretary of State John Kerry: "We are grateful obviously for the Egyptian initiative, for the Israeli efforts initially, but also this particular effort now has been significantly assisted by the input of Qatar, the input of Turkey, and the willingness of these foreign ministers to work hard, even though they were at a distance, and to engage directly with some of the Palestinian factions in order to try to help get us where we are today."STORYLINE:US State Secretary John Kerry laid out the ambitions of a permanent Gaza ceasefire on Saturday, after a Foreign Ministers meeting in Paris.Kerry said that a ceasefire should address the issue of tunnels in the Gaza Strip to ensure Israel's safety but should not mean a continuance of the status quo for Palestinians.Kerry also thanked Turkey and Qatar for their assistance in this latest push for a ceasefire, saying they made it possible to "to engage directly with some of the Palestinian factions in order to try to help get us where we are today."A ceasefire agreement will need to reassure Palestinians that they will be able "to live and breathe more freely and move within the crossings and begin to have goods and services that come in from outside," he said.Foreign Ministers from seven nations gathered in Paris on Saturday, calling for an extension of the 12-hour humanitarian ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.For days Kerry has been moving between the Egyptian capital, the West Bank and Jerusalem, and talking to officials from Qatar, who are in contact with Hamas, in an effort to agree a long-term ceasefire in Gaza. At least 985 Palestinians, mainly civilians, have been killed and more than 6-thousand wounded over the past 19 days, according to Palestinian officials.Israeli soldier deaths stand at 37 while two civilians and a Thai worker have also been killed.
