MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Israel should refrain from unilateral actions and the policy of fait accompli on Palestine, French President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday at the UN General Assembly Session.

"What will allow solving the crisis between Israel and Palestine?… Not unilateral initiatives, not ignoring the legitimate right of Palestinians to obtain durable peace, nor underestimating the legitimate rights of the Israelis, that is, security… It is in the name of this friendship [of France with Israel] that I am calling on it to rapidly put an end to the policy of fait accompli that is threatening the very possibility of reaching a peace agreement," Macron said.
