In a meeting on the sidelines of the General Assembly’s 66th annual session, Mr. Ban reiterated his support for a Palestinian State, living side by side in peace with a secure Israel, reaffirming his belief that negotiations were the only path for a sustainable resolution of all final status issues.
He emphasized the need for historic decisions on both sides at this critical moment.
In a meeting on Monday, the President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, told Mr. Ban he intended to submit an application this Friday for Palestine to become a UN Member State.
Israeli-Palestinian peace talks have been stalled since late September 2010 following Israel’s refusal to extend a 10-month freeze on settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian territory.
That decision prompted Mr. Abbas to withdraw from direct talks with Mr. Netanyahu, which had only resumed a few weeks earlier after a two-year hiatus.
