Peace between the people of Israel and Palestine is possible and everything should be done to achieve it, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday.

His message was for all those participating in a conference at the UN in Geneva, which is exploring how to advance the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

The focus of any future agreement is the creation of a Palestinian state in territory occupied by Israel since the 1967 Middle East war, the so-called two-state Solution.

Such an accord could be reached at an international conference which Israel may well attend, according to Mohammad Shtayyeh.

Mr Shtayyeh is senior adviser to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, and he's been speaking to Daniel Johnson.
