On the day of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, the Secretary-General of the United Nations: The prospect of the two-state solution between Palestine and Israel is “over and more distant”
United Nations News on November 29, November 29 is the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. United Nations Secretary-General Guterres issued a message urging the Israeli and Palestinian leaders to seek every opportunity to “restore hope” and achieve the two-State solution.
Guterres warned that the prospect of a viable two-state solution has become “more and more distant”. “Many factors continue to cause severe suffering, including the expansion of illegal settlements, the demolition of Palestinian homes and buildings, the continued violence and the sharp increase in armed activities,” he said.
Guterres said he remained committed to supporting the Palestinian and Israeli conflict resolution and ultimately resolving the conflict and ending the occupation of Palestinian territories in accordance with relevant United Nations resolutions, international law and bilateral agreements, in search of realizing the vision of “two states” – Israel and an independent, democratic, adjacent and possessed Sovereign Palestine coexisted in peace and security on the basis of the pre-1967 borders and within secure and recognized borders, and Jerusalem is the capital of the two countries.
“Let’s work together to reaffirm our commitment to the Palestinian people in order to seek the realization of their inalienable rights and to build a future with peace, dignity, justice and security,” Guterres said.
