UN secretary general: ‘Two-state solution remains only way forward’

UN Secretary General António Guterres opens his first General Assembly with a call to renew steps towards a two-state solution.

“We must not let today’s stagnation in the peace process lead to tomorrow’s escalation,” he tells the UN chamber in New York.

“The two-state solution remains the only way forward must be pursued,” he says.

Calling for stronger international cooperation to combat terrorism, Guterres says that while “terrorism can never be justified,” countries must “do more to address the roots of radicalization, including real and perceived injustices.”
