    Palestine is ready to move forward with its draft resolution to the UN Security Council on the need to end the Israeli occupation should the international peace initiative launched by France fail, Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad Maliki told Sputnik on Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Last week, Paris hosted an international conference of 28 delegations aimed at the resumption of the stalled Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. The conference's participants assessed the situation that involved possible risks for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    "We are always ready to reengage with our initiative to the Security Council if we see or believe that the French Initiative is not taking the momentum and is not leading towards the type of results we are expecting," the minister said.
