Cairo (IINA) � UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said there is no option other than a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict and efforts to reach it should be preserved, AFP reported.
Guterres's comments came after he met Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, in Cairo on Wednesday, and a day after a senior White House official said the United States would not insist on a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
Later, in a speech at Cairo University, the UN chief said the Israeli-Palestinian problem was the "mother" of regional conflicts, adding: "There is no Plan B than a two-state solution."
The White House official's comments came ahead of talks between US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later Wednesday in Washington.
