Palestine reports 'diminished hope' in peace process


10:17, October 16, 2012

UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) -- Palestine said here Monday there were "diminished hopes" in the peace process with Israel to translate the two-state solution into reality, and urged the international community to act to help reach the goal.

Riyad Mansour, the permanent Palestinian observer to the United Nations, made the statement as he was taking the floor at an open meeting of the UN Security Council on the current situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question.

"The political process has remained deadlocked and the situation on the ground has sharply deteriorated," Mansour said. “Israel’s flagrant flouting of the law has obstructed the resumption of peace negotiations and intensified hardships for the Palestinian people in all aspects of life."

The two-state solution, widely supported by the international community, means a secure Israel to live in peace with an independent State of Palestine.
