“UN ENVOY CALLS ABBAS ANNOUNCEMENT
‘ A LOUD AND CLEAR WAKE-UP CALL’”


10 November 2009, Jerusalem

For Immediate Release


UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Robert Serry called on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas today in Ramallah. After the meeting, Mr. Serry said:

“I conveyed to President Abbas the Secretary-General’s strong support for his leadership. But it is clear that this precious asset is now in jeopardy. I believe President Abbas’ announcement last week is a loud and clear wake-up call.

I repeat the Secretary-General’s call for a freeze on all settlement activity. Either we go forward decisively to a two State solution in accordance with Security Council resolutions, or we risk sliding backwards.”
