New Zealand diplomats at the UN Security Council circulated a draft resolution urging Israel to stop settlement construction and calling on the Palestinians to drop their International Criminal Court bid against Israel.

The draft resolution, obtained Thursday by The Associated Press, notes “with alarm the escalating cycle of violence” between Israel and the Palestinians. It declares that a two-state solution, achieved through direct negotiations, is the only path to peace.

Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon told AP: “This proposal is destructive instead of being constructive.” Direct talks, not UN resolutions, he said, “are the only way to move forward.”
