Just as the peacekeeping envoy from the UN was being briefed by the Home Office, peace has suddenly broken out in Burnage, Manchester.
Well, Henley and Maida Vale to be precise - the homes of the warring Gallagher brothers.
Liam has dropped his High Court writ against brother Noel after the older sibling offered an olive branch during a webchat for the launch of his new single The Death Of You And Me.
Beady Eye frontman Liam heard Noel admit his brother's doctor's note for Oasis's cancelled V Festival gig at Chelmsford in 2009 DID exist - and Liam decided it was time to move on.
Speaking on a recorded fan chat with pal Matt Morgan, Noel said: "For the record, it is a fact that he was diagnosed with laryngitis and it is a fact that he had a doctor's note to prove it. I'd just like to say that if he gets offended by my opinions on such things then I apologise."
That was enough for Liam and the word was sent to his legal firm to get in touch with Noel's lawyers to put an end to the whole ugly mess.
A source added: "Liam had spoken to his mum Peggy and she was upset by the whole episode.
"That was playing on his mind then he had a moment of realisation that Noel wasn't being vindictive - he was just being cheeky. It was an anger that had built up over two years because he was so angry Oasis was over.
"In the cold light of day he realised his brother was actually being quite calm about it all, and decided a legal battle was a bad idea. Hopefully that will draw a line under it all and everyone can move on."
Talking about going on tour as a solo artist, Noel said: "I couldn't do Supersonic or Cigarettes and Alcohol or Lyla, that is a shame.
"I wouldn't attempt to do the more rock Oasis songs as Liam has such a great rock voice.
"That is a shame, that those songs will not be heard for the foreseeable future anyway. I think it's sad as they're great stadium anthems.
"We've all got to move on. I might do a jazz fusion version of them further down the line."
