UN envoy warns of ‘perpetual reality of permanent occupation’ without peace deal

UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov addresses the UN Security Council on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Mladenov warns of a “perpetual reality of permanent occupation” in the absence of a two-state deal.

He says there is a need for “meaningful” negotiations on all final status issues, including Jerusalem’s status. He says a “sustainable peace” can only be achieved by a two-state solution reached through negotiations.

Mladenov calls for continued support for Palestinian refugees and, in a veiled criticism of the US, chides UN member states that have cut their contributions.
