Shimon Peres worked ‘tirelessly’ for two-state solution: UN chief

Geneva (AFP) – UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon hailed Shimon Peres’s long efforts to forge a deal aimed at fostering peace in Israel and the Middle East, after the statesman’s death earlier on Wednesday.

“He worked tirelessly for a two-state solution that would enable Israel to live securely and harmoniously with the Palestinians and the wider region,” Ban said of the former Israeli leader who died at 93.
