Press Conference by Security Council President on Work Programme for September
On whether the Middle East Quartet should be dissolved, he said the group provided the international foundation to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, along with Council resolutions. To dissolve it would only weaken the base. It must be strengthened to involve the Arab League and key countries, such as Egypt. No other solution would benefit both sides. He did not envision anytime this month a resolution that outlined a deadline and parameters for resolving the conflict, he added.
