      UN: Ban Backs PA Statehood Bid


      United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon reaffirmed his support for an independent Palestinian state Friday, saying UN membership for the PA was an issue for member states to decide.

      Ban, winding up a trip to Australia and the South Pacific, said he strongly supported a two-state solution where “Palestinians and Israelis can live side by side in peace and security.”
