Question of Palestine home
United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO)
1 December 2009
Statement by Richard Miron, Spokesperson for the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Robert Serry
Jerusalem, 01 December 2009
"The Secretary General has expressed his dismay at the continuation of demolitions, evictions and the installment of Israeli settlers in Palestinian neighborhoods in occupied East Jerusalem. Provocative actions such as these create inevitable tensions, undermine trust, often have tragic human consequences and make resuming negotiations and achieving a two state solution more difficult. We reiterate the Secretary General's call for these actions to cease immediately."
Note: This statement was delivered earlier today to the press in Sheikh Jarrah outside the house that was occupied by settlers.
