‘Door closing’ on two-state solution: Ban tells U.N. Assembly

By AL ARABIYA WITH AGENCIES

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon painted a dismal picture over the possibility of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Tuesday, saying the “door may be closing [on the solution], for good.”

The U.N. chief told the U.N. General Assembly the continued growth of Israeli settlements undercuts any peace efforts within the conflict.

“The two-state solution is the only sustainable option. Yet the door may be closing, for good,” Ban said.

“The continued growth of Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory seriously undermines efforts towards peace. We must break this dangerous impasse.”http://english.alarabiya.net/articles/2012/09/25/240123.html
