Press Conference by President of Security Council on Work Programme for December


Replying to a question on the situation in the Middle East, he said the issue of settlements in the Occupied Palestine Territory was a controversial issue in the Council.  Several issues could be considered on 16 December, but it was uncertain whether a draft resolution on settlements would be tabled, even though some Council members thought December would be the right month in which to take a decision on the Middle East situation.
