UN special envoy admits to 'Post': Israel not always treated fairly

Post by Guest on Fri Feb 19, 2016 5:43 am

Nickolay Mladenov carries the title of special coordinator for the Middle East peace process and personal representative of the UN secretary-general to the PLO and the PA.

Anybody who thinks its posssible to get Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and PA President Mahmoud Abbas in a room to negotiate a comprehensive deal is “daydreaming,” Nickolay Mladenov, the UN’s special envoy to the Middle East, said Thursday.

As a result, Mladenov said in an interview with The Jerusalem Post, the goal now is much more narrow: to create the conditions that will enable negotiations in the future.

To this end the Middle East Quartet, of which the UN is a member, along with the US, Russia and the EU, is working on an “extensive report on the situation on the ground.”

Mladenov, who carries the title of special coordinator for the Middle East peace process and personal representative of the UN secretary-general to the PLO and the PA, said this document will spell out the impediments to two-state solution and how to move forward.

The goal, he said, is “trying to rebuild some trust between the two sides so that they can inevitably come back to a full process, and also to keep the international community engaged in a constructive way on how we can support such a process when the parties come together.”
