Jerusalem status must be resolved in Israeli-Palestinian talks: UN chief


United Nations: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres implicitly criticized President Donald Trump´s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel´s capital Wednesday, warning that the city´s status must be resolved through direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

"From day one as secretary-general of the United-Nations, I have consistently spoken out against any unilateral measures that would jeopardize the prospect of peace for Israelis and Palestinians," Guterres said, immediately after the US leader´s announcement.

"Jerusalem is a final status issue that must be resolved through direct negotiations between the two parties on the basis of the relevant Security Council and General Assembly resolutions, taking into account the legitimate concerns of both the Palestinian and the Israeli sides," Guterres said.
