UN peace envoy blasts Israel for entrenching a ‘one-state reality’ with settlements

The United Nations envoy for the Mideast slams Israel for approving over 1,000 new settlement homes in the West Bank, saying the move is incompatible with a two-state solution.

In a statement Nickolay Mladenov says “settlement-related activities undermine the chances for the establishment of a viable, contiguous Palestinian state as part of a negotiated two-state solution.”

He says Israel’s settlement enterprise “entrench[es] a one-state reality that is incompatible with realizing the national aspirations of both peoples.”
