UN Secretary General António Guterres believes that after the war, the Gaza Strip should not come under the protection of the UN. Instead, he calls for a transition period to achieve a two-state solution and encourages the involvement of the United States and Arab countries in this process.
During a press conference on Monday, Guterres stated that he does not support the idea of putting Gaza under the protection of the UN. He proposes a transition period that involves the United States and Arab countries, focusing on creating conditions for the strengthening of the Palestinian Self-Government. This would enable the Palestinian government to take over power in Gaza and work towards a two-state solution.
Hamas, a Palestinian Islamist group, seized power in the Gaza Strip in 2007. The two-state solution aims to establish an independent Palestinian state alongside the state of Israel. Guterres emphasizes the need for a common approach from important players, including different states and international bodies, to cooperate in achieving this solution.
He also highlights the importance of the USA as a crucial guarantor of security for Israel and the role of neighboring and Arab countries in supporting the Palestinians. Guterres urges everyone to follow the situation in the war between Hamas and Israel.
