The United Nations said a two-state approach is the only solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The two-state solution continues to be "the only way" to reach the legitimate national aspirations of both the Israelis and the Palestinians, the UN envoy for the Middle East peace process, Nikolay Mladenov, told the Security Council.
The diplomat said that "recent events" surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian situation should concern the entire world and warned against adopting insufficiently defined formulas to try to put an end to the conflict.
"Some may hold the illusion that the conflict can be ‘managed’ indefinitely," Mladenov said. "That the absence of a clear strategy to advance peace is a strategy in itself."
