The situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question

On 25 July, the Security Council heard the monthly open briefing on the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question, by the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Michael Williams. The Special Coordinator said that over the past month there had been a number of important developments giving cause for hope, with the most notable one being the re-engagement of the international community and Israel with the Palestinian Government of Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. He also told the Council that the positive developments were offset by a problematic and increasingly complex reality on the ground where violence continued and the humanitarian situation deteriorated. Afterwards, in consultations of the whole, the members of the Council agreed in general with the assessment of the situation by the Special Coordinator.
