Ban: “Don’t pull the plug” on Israeli Palestinian peace
November 14, 2012 08:40
All those “with influence” should breath new life into the frozen Israeli Palestinian peace process before it is to late, pled UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in a speech he gave at Yale University on Tuesday night.
Urging Israelis and Palestinians to return to the negotiating table, Ban said, “There can be no substitute for meaningful negotiations.”
He spoke as Palestinians plan to push ahead with their unilateral bid to ask the UN General Assembly to upgrade their status to that of a non-member state on November 29.
