UNITED NATIONS — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is calling for a halt to "irresponsible rhetoric" that questions a two-state Israeli-Palestinian solution and incites hatred and violence.

The UN chief on Friday told a UN committee that deals with Palestinian issues that the Palestinians have the right to an independent state, Israel has a right to live in peace within secure borders, and a way must be found for Jerusalem to emerge as the capital of the two states.
