The United Nations Mideast envoy has warned on Thursday that “the rise of violent extremism and terrorism" in the Middle East poses as much a danger to Palestinian statehood aspirations as to Israel's security”.
Nickolay Mladenov warned the U.N. Security Council that support for a Palestinian state co-existing peacefully with Israel “is fading away.” Mladenov added that the elusive two-state solution is further threatened by Israel's occupation of Palestinian territory and settlement construction there, along with violence, security problems and lack of Palestinian unity.
“Israel and the Palestinians are now further apart than ever from achieving peace and two-state solution, he said. “Now is the time to act decisively to reverse the growing perception that the two-state solution is on life support,” said Mladenov.
The U.N. special coordinator for the Middle East peace process urged the international community to work with Israelis and Palestinians to return “to meaningful negotiations on the basis of an agreed framework and within a reasonable timeframe.”
