UN Chief Urges Netanyahu, Abbas, to Carry on Talks


UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has spoken separately with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to encourage them to keep alive the faltering peace process.

The United Nations chief "strongly encouraged both sides to continue to negotiate constructively," spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Monday. He also "expressed the hope that the two leaders seize the opportunity offered by US efforts to find a way to move towards a two-state solution," Dujarric added.
