“It’s a very big problem that the Palestinian territories have to cope with.
And we’re facing the same situation that the Israeli settlements have to deal with, where they’re faced with a massive influx of people who want to live in the West Bank.
So, we have to find a solution.
We can’t go back to the old way of dealing with this problem, where the settlers just come and set up their settlements.”
In the meantime, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees has warned that the “catastrophic” situation in the territories is the result of a lack of international action.
A spokesman for the UN refugee agency, Martin Nesirky, said in a statement that the world’s response to the crisis has been insufficient.
“The global response has been inadequate, with governments and international organizations not taking action, and the humanitarian crisis is continuing unabated.
The situation is spiraling out of control, with thousands of Palestinian refugees fleeing to Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt and Syria, all countries where Israel has military and economic control,” he said.
In a statement released on Wednesday, UN refugee chief Antonio Guterres said Israel must make “serious efforts” to end the crisis, adding that the international community must do more to help Palestinian refugees.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to make a deal with the Palestinians to end their decades-long conflict, but the US has so far refused to offer any concessions, including allowing for the resumption of a two-state solution.
In an interview with CNN on Wednesday night, US Secretary of State John Kerry said the US would not compromise its commitment to Israel’s security and would not “sit on the sidelines” if Israel did not agree to a two state solution.
But the White House has also suggested that Kerry could eventually meet with Netanyahu, and he has not ruled out the possibility of a direct meeting with the Israeli leader.
“I hope so.
I hope it’s not too far off, and that he’s willing to come to the table,” Kerry said.
Kerry said Israel and the Palestinians had reached a “decision point” in their conflict, and it was up to them to make the right decisions.
“It’s important for all parties to move forward in an orderly way, and I would say that this is a very difficult moment, and there’s a real possibility that things will not go well,” Kerry told CNN.
“But we are going to make sure that the United States is there to stand by Israel, because the United Kingdom and France are there as well, and Canada as well.
So we are there.
We’re not there to be a mediator.
We are there to do what we have always done.
And that is to make that decision.”
