New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray MCcully said in an interview with TV3 on Sunday that renewing peace talks between Israel and Palestine should be high on the list of priorities for the UN Security Council.

In the interview, he discussed several key issues concerning the stalled peace talks, including land swaps and Israel's security. He referred to Israeli security a "thorny issue", however reiterated that both parties are "not that far apart" when it comes to a resolution.

He stated that in order for progress to be made, both parties must first be in the same room. "The security council should play a role here, not to try and multi-lateralize a process that has to be between the two principles, but rather to give support as they engage."
