UNITED NATIONS (AP) - President Barack Obama says the time is ripe to press for a resolution of the long conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis.

Obama is telling the United Nations' General Assembly in New York that all sides must be willing to take risks in order to achieve Mideast peace.

The president says Israel and its friends must be willing to accept a Palestinian state. And he says Arab states must recognize that stability can only be achieved through a two-state solution with a secure Israel.

Talks on Mideast peace resumed this summer after months of prodding by Secretary of State John Kerry. But the prospect of a resolution on issues that have long had the Israelis and Palestinians at odds remain slim.
