The Elders to visit Israel and Palestine from 20-22 June
Mary Robinson and Ban Ki-moon will visit Israel and Palestine from 20-22 June as part of The Elders’ long-standing support for a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on the principle of two states.
In the course of their visit, the Elders will explore with diverse stakeholders how progress can be made towards a just and sustainable peace rooted in respect for international law. They will be meeting Israeli and Palestinian political leaders, civil society representatives, members of the diplomatic community and media.
This will be the fifth Elders’ visit to the region since the group was founded by Nelson Mandela in 2007, and the first one since May 2015, when Jimmy Carter and Gro Harlem Brundtland visited.
