UNSC tackles the situation in the Middle East

The Security Council met on Tuesday to hear a briefing by Oscar Fernández-Taranco, Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs, and to hold an open debate on the situation in the Middle East.

The Togo Representative, Kodjo Menan (photo), pointing out the difficulties on the ground and in the peace process in the Middle East, regretted that the international community’s efforts had not brought more progress.  

In that context, new Israeli settlement activity, the blockade of Gaza and the situation of Palestinian refugees also raised concern.  He appealed for adequate funding for UNRWA, for that reason. Kodjo Menan also called for the end of rocket fire from Gaza.  

Citing recent positive developments, he praised the efforts of the Quartet to bring about preliminary talks, and called on the parties to overcome their differences.  

Mr. Menan stressed that his country had good relations with both Israel and the Palestinians, and had consistently supported the two-State solution, to be brought about through negotiations.  

He called for the end to all acts that could lead to violence, and for the Quartet to act as guarantor of any agreements reached.  

The Council must also bring sufficient pressure to bear on both parties to ensure that they negotiate in good faith.
