The right of the Palestinian people to build their own state “must be recognized by all,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the Non-Aligned Movement summit in Uganda on Saturday, appearing to respond to recent statements by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterating his rejection of the notion, according to AFP. 

“The refusal to accept a two-state solution for Israelis and Palestinians, and the denial of the right to statehood for the Palestinian people, are unacceptable,” the UN leader insisted in the Ugandan capital Kampala.

Such a stance “would indefinitely prolong a conflict that has become a major threat to global peace and security; exacerbate polarization; and embolden extremists everywhere,” Guterres warned.
