A two state solution may soon be impossible to achieve if the peace process is not resumed, UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process Robert Serry warned on Monday.

“I am deeply concerned that a one-state reality is on the parties’ doorstep if they fail to address the present deadlock,” Serry told the UN Security Council on Monday.

“I feel 2014 changed the course of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and that the future is more uncertain than ever,” Serry said.

The international community, he said, must play a role in ending “the deadly diplomatic vacuum” and restarting the peace process. The number of European parliaments that have held non-binding votes to recognize Palestine as a state “serve to highlight growing impatience at the continued lack of real progress,” Serry said.
