Settlements are the main obstacle to peace and the two-state solution, the Palestinian Authority's foreign minister on Wednesday said in his address to the UN Security Council according to Palestinian Ma'an news agency.

Riyad al-Malki stated that the window for a two-state solution was closing. "There can be no one in this chamber today who can deny this," Ma'an quoted him as saying. He also called on Israel to halt settlement construction as a legal obligation, not as a precondition.

The foreign minister also addressed the recent PA status upgrade at the UN, saying that he hoped the Security Council would accept Palestine as a full member of the UN, Ma'an reported.
