No Stability in Middle East without Palestine state, Says France

 

France reaffirmed its commitment to the two-state solution and support to a new political perspective leading to the establishment of a Palestinian State alongside Israel.
France's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Francois Delattre said that the establishment of a Palestinian state is in the interest of Middle Eastern stability, stressing that without a Palestinian state, there will never be peace in the region.
"We cannot surrender and we cannot accept the current situation, which will inevitably lead to a disaster", Palestinian Wafa news reported Delattre saying, during his testimony before the UN Security Council.
"We are convinced more than ever that there is no alternative to the establishment of a Palestinian state which is in the interest of everyone and in the interest of peace, so it is essential that the Security Council shoulders its responsibilities towards this end."
The French Ambassador pointed out that the Israeli settlements are illegal and undermine the possibility of a Palestinian state existing on the ground, noting that the political vacuum will feed the risk of explosion and move public opinion in Israel and in Palestine toward militancy.
Delattre stressed on the need for all parties "to commit to the two-state solution and to proceed from here to create a new political perspective that leads to the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel," and to face the continued unilateral strategies which only increase the lack of trust between the parties.
Delattre told that France believes “only a reinforced and renewed international accompaniment can allow the parties to firmly commit on the demanding way of peace.â€
