Permanent Observer of Palestine to the United Nations
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"Today's vote is also a contribution to the international efforts to salvage the two-State solution based on the pre-1967 borders and in accordance with the relevant resolutions of this United Nations and the Arab Peace Initiative; a solution that has been gravely damaged by the occupying Power, yet which we continue to strive for so that we may see the day when the State of Palestine and State of Israel live side by side in peace, coexistence and security, ushering the dawn of a new era in our region and in our global community."
