U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon intended to appoint Robert H. Serry of the Netherlands as the U.N. envoy for the Middle East, U.N. spokesperson Michele Montas announced Thursday.

Mongtas told reporters at the U.N. Headquarters in New York that the Secretary-General has informed the Security Council of his intention to appoint Serry as the U.N. Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process and his Personal Representative to the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Palestinian Authority.

In addition, Serry will also be the Envoy of the Secretary-General to the Quartet -- the United Nations, the European Union, the United States and Russia, she noted.

Montas said that this appointment comes at a critical juncture, as the Annapolis conference has created renewed momentum for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

"Serry will play a pivotal role in coordinating all U.N. activities related to the Middle East peace process and in representing the Secretary-General in all arenas involving the parties and the international community," she added.
