Robert Patman: Otago University international relations professor on Winston Peters' speech to the UN

View descriptionShare

Winston Peters has pulled no punches over the need for a two-state solution in Gaza. 

The Foreign Affairs Minister has reiterated his calls for an immediate ceasefire at the UN General Assembly in New York. 

He says the two-state solution is the only blueprint for peace, but Israel's seizing of Palestinian territory imperils that. 

Otago University international relations professor Robert Patman told Mike Hosking that's probably the general feeling among the international community. 

He says just because Israel is illegally taking territory doesn't mean that can't happen, and Israel has to consider its legal obligations.  

Meanwhile, Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu says a date has been set for Israel to invade Rafah.
