UN Chief: Two-State Solution after Gaza Crisis

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday foresees that a strengthened Palestinian Authority would assume responsibilities in Gaza after the current crisis and international players would work toward a two-state solution.
Asked about his vision “for the day after” in Gaza, Guterres said it is important to be able to transform this tragedy into an opportunity for a long-term settlement.
“And for that to be possible, it is essential that after the war we move in a determined and irreversible way to a two-state solution,” he said.
“I believe it will be important to have a strengthened Palestinian Authority assuming responsibilities in Gaza. “I do not think that a UN protectorate in Gaza is a solution. I think we need a multi-stakeholder approach in which different countries, different entities, will cooperate.”
For Israel, the United States is the main guarantor of its security. For Palestinians, the neighboring and Arab countries of the region are essential.
