UNITED NATIONS: The United Nations has called upon Israel to immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory including East Jerusalem.

In a briefing to the Security Council, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nickolay Mladenov warned that settlement expansion is eroding the prospect of a two-state solution to the long-standing Middle East conflict.

The senior UN official called on Israelis, Palestinians and the international community to take concrete steps to reverse the current course of conflict and advance the goal of a just and sustainable peace. APP/AFP
