Quartet report to highlight threats to peace

NEW YORK – The Middle East Quartet’s report, expected to be published on Friday morning, will focus on the major threats to achieving negotiated Israeli-Palestinian peace, and offer recommendations on the way forward, according to UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nikolay Mladenov.

Mladenov briefed the UN Security Council at its monthly meeting about the situation in the Middle East on Thursday and explained that three major threats to a two state solution are emphasized in the document: continuing violence, terrorism and the incitement that fuels them; Israel’s policy of settlement expansion in the West Bank; and the lack of control of Gaza by the Palestinian Authority.
