French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Sunday said that he could not rule out the possibility of the UN Security Council creating a Palestinian state, AFP cited from an interview by Palestinian paper al-Ayyam.

Kouchner reportedly told al-Ayyam that France preferred a two-state solution negotiated between the Palestinian Authority and Israel but that a UN-brokered resolution to the decades-long conflict remained a possibility.

"The international community cannot be satisfied with a prolonged deadlock. I therefore believe that one cannot rule out in principle the Security Council option," he was cited by AFP as saying.

Kouchner as called for the European Union, the Palestinian Authority's largest donor, to play a more active role in the peace talks.
