United Nations, Sep 5 (IANS) UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will host a quartet meeting aiming to end the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict on September 30 during the upcoming 70th General Assembly, a spokesperson said.

“The meeting will be held in New York. The foreign minister of the Russian Federation, the secretary of state of the United States, and the high representative of the European Union for foreign affairs and security policy have been invited for the meeting,” Xinhua news agency quoted the spokesperson as saying.

Moreover, the UN chief is also inviting the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, as well as the foreign ministers of the Arab Republic of Egypt, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to join the meeting.
