Occupied Jerusalem situation must be left for final status negations , stressing its support of two-state solution, spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric  said on Monday evening. Spokesperson for the UN secretary general Stephane Dujarric answered journalists' questions during a press conference by a videoconference with journalists at the United Nations headquarters in New York.

 He replied to questions of Journalists regarding the intention of Kosovo and Serbia to transfer their embassies to occupied Jerusalem.

 The final status negations  are outstanding issues of Palestinian-Israeli negotiations since the Madrid Peace Conference in 1991, that include Jerusalem, refugees, settlements, security arrangements, borders, relations and cooperation with other neighbors, and other issues of common interest.

 Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres hopes that the agreement to establish diplomatic relations between Bahrain and Israel will help advance regional cooperation 

Dujarric pointed out that Guterres also expects Israeli and Palestinian leaders to re-engage in meaningful negotiations that will effectuate the so-called two-state solution under relevant UN resolutions and existing international agreements.

On Friday, Israel and Bahrain agreed to normalize relations. The two countries agreed to establish diplomatic ties a month after a similar deal was brokered by the United States between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

It is to hold a signing ceremony on Tuesday at the White House, in the presence of the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Emirati foreign ministers, Abdullah bin Zayed, and the Bahraini, Abdul Latif Al-Zayani.

 Palestinian authority and all Palestinian factions denounced the normalizing agreement between UAE, Bahrain and Israeli occupation, considering it a betrayal.

The PA recalled its ambassadors in Abu Dhabi and Manama in protest of the UAE and Bahrain peace deals with Israel.
