1. United Nations - Middle East - Remarks to the press by the Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations (Paris - February 24, 2020)

As you all know, France supports the two-state solution and we have been supporting this solution for ever, based on the Security Council resolutions. This is the French position; this is also the position of the European Union. And in this context, all measures which have to do with colonization and settlements undermine the two-state solution. This is why we believe they should not take place, they should be reversed, they are violation of international law, and last but not least they undermine the two-state solution.

So, this is the message I will carry to the Security Council: no further settlements, no colonization, Jerusalem as the capital of the two states, and resumption of a political process between Israel and Palestine based on agreed parameters based on all relevant Security Council resolutions.
