UN chief calls for new Israeli-Palestinian talks, brands UNRWA outcome of ‘political failure’

UNITED NATIONS — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon used the 65th anniversary of the UN agency that helps Palestinian refugees to appeal Tuesday for an immediate resumption of Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations and an end to unilateral actions “that erode trust.”

Ban told a UN conference marking the anniversary of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency that UNRWA was never meant to exist for 65 years, but “it exists because of political failure.”
