Briefing the Security Council on the situation in the Middle East, he said that the stalemate in the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations has persisted in the last month.

Mr. Pascoe told the Council that this impasse is of particular concern given the achievements that have been made by the Palestinian Authority in building state institutions.

“Bold and decisive steps are needed to resolve this decades-long conflict, with vision, leadership and responsibility from all concerned. It is also important that any outbreaks of violence that could undermine political efforts are prevented and that the parties refrain from provocative steps on the ground”.
