The prospect of a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine continues to recede with potentially explosive consequences, according to the UN Secretary-General.

Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday was speaking to members of the Security Council at a briefing on the situation in the Middle East.

Tension between Israel and Palestine continues following the latest war last summer which lasted seven weeks and resulted in thousands of deaths and widespread destruction in Gaza.
