The secretary-general of the United Nations, António Guterres, has described the israeli project supported by the United States annexation of parts of the west bank a “time of water deluge” and has urged Israel to reconsider the possibility of undermining the two-state solution and destabilize the region.
“If it is implemented, the annexation would constitute a violation of the most serious of international law, would seriously undermine the prospect of a two-state solution and undermine the possibilities of resumption of the negotiations “, said António Guterres in a statement released Wednesday.
Guterres also called on Israel and Palestine to return to the table to work on the research of a two-state solution as defined by the international law in the framework of the pre-1967 border that Israel seized during the Six Day war.
