The UN secretary general has called on Israel to put an end to its occupation of Palestinian territories and its aggression against Palestinians.

Ban Ki-moon said that Israel's construction of illegal settlement on the occupied lands must be halted immediately, stop all forms of violence and provocation and must revert back to its 1967 borders.

“The occupation that started in 1967 is morally and politically unsustainable, and must end,” Ban said in a meeting in Uruguay on Tuesday.

“The target date for completing the Palestinian Authority's two-year State-building program is fast-approaching,” Ynet News quoted Ban as saying.

He added that “the Palestinians have a legitimate right to the establishment of an independent and viable State of their own.”

Ban said that “there must be a just and agreed solution to the prolonged plight of the Palestinian refugees.”

The UN chief also urged Israeli authorities to remove obstacles to freedom of Palestinian movement and cease military operations against them.

Ban further called for the easing of the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip which has been under an all-out land, aerial and naval Israeli blockade since 2007.
