António Guterres, the UN Secretary General, believes that the Gaza Strip should not be protected by the UN after the war. Instead, he calls for a transition period to achieve a two-state solution and urges everyone to help in this process. He made these comments at a press conference on Monday, as stated in a UN press release.
Guterres proposes involving the United States and Arab countries in the transition period. He emphasizes the need for a common approach involving all influential players, with different states and international bodies cooperating. The UN Secretary General’s remarks reflect a call for collaboration and support from various parties to facilitate a peaceful and stable resolution in the region.
Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip in 2007, and Guterres stresses the importance of strengthening 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. Guterres emphasizes that everyone must work together to achieve this goal and create a better future for all people in the region.
