UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday opened the 66th annual General Assembly of the international organization, saying that "the Palestinians deserve a state" and adding that Israel needs security."

The Palestinians bid to gain recognition of a state with full membership at the United Nations was expected to be one of tree central issues dominating the event in the coming week.

US President Barack Obama was expected to follow Ban with a speech of his own to the General Assembly on Wednesday.
