UN Secretary General António Guterres believes that a transition period is necessary for the Gaza Strip to achieve a two-state solution. He called for international support and urged all parties to work together towards this goal. According to a UN press release, Guterres made these comments during a press conference on Monday.
Guterres emphasized the need for a common approach involving all influential players, including the United States and Arab countries. He stressed the importance of cooperation between different states and international bodies in order to facilitate a peaceful and stable resolution in the region.
The Gaza Strip has been under Hamas control since 2007, and Guterres called for a transition period to strengthen the Palestinian Self-Government so that it can take over power in Gaza. This would allow for the initiation of a two-state solution, with an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel.
The UN Secretary General’s remarks reflect his call for collaboration and support from various parties to facilitate a peaceful and stable resolution in the region.
