Press Conference by Security Council President on Work Programme for June
Peacekeeping reform would be among the top priorities of the Security Council’s work in June, François Delattre (France), its President for that month, said at a Headquarters press conference today.
On the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he said it was France’s belief that the status quo was backtracking as settlement construction continued and public opinion hardened. However, the French presidency could not give up, stand aside or hope for miracles, he said, reiterating that a two-State solution was the only viable option and calling on all sides to relaunch political discussions. “We want to see a specific timeline with clear goals before the end of the year,” he added.
