UN Secretary General supports Palestinian-Israeli peace based on pre-1967 borders


UN (Sputnik) – UN Secretary General António Guterres remains committed to a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict based on the resolutions of the world forum and the pre-1967 borders, said spokesman Stéphane Dujarric, following the announcement of the US President Donald Trump of a peace plan for the Middle East.

“The secretary general has seen the announcement of the US plan for the Middle East,” Dujarric said.

Guterres spokesman added that “the UN remains committed to supporting Palestinians and Israelis to resolve the conflict based on UN resolutions, international law and bilateral agreements.”
It is about “realizing the vision of two states, Palestine and Israel, living side by side in peace and security, with recognized borders, based on the border lines before 1967,” he added.

Dujarric also said that the position of the UN (United Nations Organization) on the solution of the two states is defined by relevant resolutions of the Security Council and the General Assembly to which the General Secretariat adheres.

Trump’s “agreement of the century” provides for a state for Palestinians in some parts of the West Bank, occupied by Israel in 1967, but would leave most of the Jewish settlements installed there intact

The UN does not recognize Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.
