Security and recognition of Israel as a Jewish State are the two linchpin issues that must be acknowledged by Palestinians in order to reach final agreement and two-state solution, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor said at the UN Security Council on Tuesday.

Prosor said that he supported a two-state solution, with a Palestinian state reside "alongside and not instead of the Jewish state." That Palestinian state, the ambassador added, must be demilitarized and supported by a strong education system, halting teachings of hatred and anti-Israeli sentiment.

The Israeli ambassador rejected any unilateral move by the Palestinians, including seeking state recognition at the UN General Assembly, and dismissed such efforts as an attempt to bypass negotiations with Israel. Prosor said such efforts would be futile for Palestinians, saying only bi-lateral negotiations presented a solution.

Israel is weary of negotiating with a Palestinian government including Hamas, Prosor said, citing the Gaza government's charter, which calls for the destruction of the Jewish state.
