Following are UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ remarks to the Summit of the League of Arab States, today in Tunis:
Allow me to touch upon several current developments and situations in the region which could benefit from a comprehensive regional approach. The first imperative must be the two-State solution, for Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace within secure and recognized borders, and with Jerusalem as capital of both States, as I have always emphasized.
There is no Plan B. Without two States, there is no solution. The ongoing violence in Gaza is a tragic reminder of the fragility of the situation. Thank you for your critical support for the vital role of UNRWA [United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East]. I appeal for your continued strong assistance.
