Mr. Ban told the parties that “not making a choice in favour of peace and co-existence within the two-State framework is the most detrimental choice of all.”

Mr. Ban’s message was presented in Ankara, Turkey, at an international meeting on the Question of Jerusalem, a topic which “is perhaps the most divisive of the core issues,” he said.

The two-day meeting was convened jointly by the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Government of Turkey. It is being held in the context of the 2014 International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

The Secretary-General noted in his message to the meeting that he was “particularly troubled” by recent mounting tensions around the sensitive issue of Jerusalem and access to its holy sites, including in and around the Haram Al-Sharif/Temple Mount.

“Jerusalem inspires faith and longing for Muslims, Jews and Christians,” he said, adding that the city “must be open and accessible to all.”

He urged all sides to negotiate a solution where Jerusalem is the capital of the two States, and warned against “attempts to establish facts on the ground that alter the character of the Old City, or allow provocations that could trigger further unrest and deepen mistrust.”

 

This was just part of the linked story. IT is interesting to watch and note - this is 2 weeks AFTER they were supposed to have reached a deal.

 

Maybe they will surprise us and suddenly declare a deal reached and they have "Peace and Security". That would be historic!!

Yup. That would be a surprise. And that could be the plan. I have seen other reports that israel has already reached a deal to turn over the site of the last supper to vatican control when the pope is scheduled to visit in 3 weeks.

Wouldn't it be a big surprise if the 3 big religious leaders gather there and announce a deal? Finally peace!

Maybe wishful thinking
