Palestine has obtained, with France’s support, the status of non-member observer state of the United Nations.
I would like this recognition to be used in a positive way by the Israelis and Palestinians to relaunch a sincere peace process.
Everything which might jeopardize potential progress towards a negotiated solution must be avoided on both sides. The obligation is still to resume dialogue and negotiation without preconditions, with a view to establishing a lasting peace guaranteeing Israel’s security and an actual, viable state for the Palestinians. France will support all efforts which enable progress to this end.
