Seventieth Session, 13th, 14th & 15th Meetings (AM, PM & Night)
DILMA ROUSSEFF, President of Brazil…Today’s worrisome backdrop required swift and decisive action, she said, adding that the creation of a Palestinian State, for example, could no longer be delayed.
Sheikh TAMIM BIN HAMAD AL-THANI, Amir of Qatar, said the conflict in the Middle East would remain a constant threat to international peace and security, and a just and lasting solution to the Palestinian question could not be delayed. The international community, represented by the Security Council, should assume its responsibilities by taking a firm stance and forcing Israel to comply with the deliverables of peace, including the halting of all forms of settlement activity in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and lifting the unjust siege on the Gaza Strip.
ANIBAL CAVACO SILVA, President of Portugal, …Regarding the deadlocked peace process in the Middle East, he said there would be no lasting peace without a fair resolution of the Palestinian issue, which also ensured Israel’s security. Portugal urged the parties to resume the peace talks since it was convinced that the two-State solution was the only viable one.
RAÚL CASTRO RUZ, President of the Councils of State and Ministers of Cuba, said …and supported the Palestinians’ inalienable right to statehood within the pre-1967 borders with its capital in East Jerusalem.

ROBERT G. MUGABE, President of Zimbabwe, said …He also urged the world body to bring an end to the Israel-Palestine conflict, expressing support for the two-State solution.
ALI BONGO ONDIMBA, President of Gabon, …Regarding Israel and Palestine, the United Nations needed to help restart the peace process, but the creation of a Palestinian State was the only possible way towards a sustainable peace.
