UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon criticized Israel's policy Tuesday and said that "the occupation that started in 1967 is morally and politically unsustainable, and must end."

 

 

"The Palestinians have a legitimate right to the establishment of an independent and viable State of their own. Israel has the right to live in peace and security within internationally recognized and secure borders," he added in a statement read out by Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs Oscar Fernandez-Taranco at the United Nations regional meeting to support Israeli-Palestinian peace in Uruguay.
