A real two-state solution between Israel and Palestine is still very far away, according to the outgoing UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process.

Robert Serry says the seven years he has served in this capacity have been "eventful and difficult".

More than half a million Israelis have settled in the West Bank, a territory he says should be part of Palestine.

May Yaacoub has been speaking with Mr Serry.

She began by asking him about the prospect of a two-state solution given recent comments by the Israeli Prime Minister that raise doubts about the country's commitment to it.
