"As is" reference - not a United Nations document
Minister Bot of Foreign Affairs is to attend the memorial service for Yasser Arafat in Cairo on Friday. According to the minister, 'Arafat was not an easy man. We have often described him as part of the problem in the Middle East conflict, but also as part of the solution. And we must continue to work for that solution: two states living together in peace', stated the Dutch Minister. Minister Bot hopes that the new leadership will work hard for a sustainable solution to the conflict in the Middle East.
