Moreover, genuine dialogue, trust and generosity in putting aside peripheral or short-term interests are the way to achieve a lasting solution to the conflict between the State of Israel and the Palestinians. ...

There is a significant economic component to most of those conflicts. Substantially improving the living conditions of the Palestinian people and other peoples living under civil or regional wars will no doubt make a crucial contribution to transforming violent opposition into patient and peaceful dialogue.

In the Middle East, my delegation welcomes the direct talks between the Palestinian authorities and the Israeli Government under the auspices of the United States of America. It hopes that those talks will lead to the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian State, living side by side in peace with Israel. The Guinean Government believes that peace in that region can be achieved only in a climate of mutual trust and with a will to implement the agreements and relevant resolutions of the General Assembly and the Security Council. From that viewpoint, Israel must withdraw from the occupied Palestinian territories and end its settlement policy.

Mr. Churkin (Russian Federation) (spoke in Russian): ...

A comprehensive settlement in the Middle East would make a crucial contribution towards strengthened global stability. The parties must demonstrate political will and extend every effort to promote the success of the resumed direct Palestinian-Israeli talks. The results of the ministerial Quartet meeting of major international mediators held on 21 September demonstrated that appropriate support to the Israelis and Palestinians will continue, but the ultimate responsibility for a successful outcome rests with them.

In this connection, the decision by the Israeli authorities to not extend the moratorium on Israeli settlement activities has raised serious concern. A way out of the current impasse should be found so as to ensure that negotiations continue. Our proposal to hold an international conference on the Middle East in Moscow is aimed at advancing the Middle East settlement. This proposal has gained the support of all interested parties and the United Nations Security Council. If the direct Palestinian-Israeli dialogue becomes stable, the preparations for the Moscow forum can get under way, which should also substantively examine the Syrian and Lebanese tracks, as well as the prospects for the multilateral aspects of the Middle East settlement.
