• UN’s Ban urges 2-State solution to Israel-Palestine conflict


    UNITED NATIONS, United States: Following a meeting Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) morning in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged the leader to take the “courageous steps” necessary for a negotiated two-State solution in order to bring lasting peace, security and dignity for the people of both Israel and Palestine. “No solution to the conflict will be possible without the recognition that both Palestinians and Jews have an undeniable historic and religious connection to this land,” Ban said at a joint press conference with Netanyahu. “No solution can come through violence, it must be based on mutual respect and the recognition of the legitimate aspirations of both peoples,” he added. “No solution can be imposed from the outside, it must be based on direct negotiations on the final status issues.”
