Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Saturday called on leaders gathered at the Arab League Summit in Libya to support indirect negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority with a common aim of resolving all final issues within two years.

“There is no alternative to negotiations for a two-State solution,” Ban in his address.

“I am aware that regional confidence in the Israeli Government is very low, but there is no alternative to getting the parties to the negotiating table and testing their commitment.”

Ban called for the lifting of the blockade on the Gaza Strip which has created an “unacceptable and unsustainable” situation on the ground.
