United Nations • The U.N. secretary-general says it is his "hope and belief" that his emergency mission to the Middle East will lead to an end to the fighting between Hamas and Israel "in the very near future."

Ban Ki-moon told the Security Council on Tuesday by videoconference from the West Bank city of Ramallah that he could not publicly reveal details of talks "at this highly sensitive moment."

"Suffice it to say it is my hope and belief that these talks will lead to results and an end to the fighting in the very near future," he said.

As Ban started to address the council a siren could be heard in the background.

The U.N. chief has also visited Qatar, Kuwait, Cairo and Jerusalem in his bid to end the conflict.
