Obama Calls on Israel to Pursue Two-State Solution

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- U.S. President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he looks to the incoming Israeli government and the Palestinians to show a "genuine commitment to a two-state solution" and asserted that an agreement will have to resolve the humanitarian conflict caused by last summer’s war in the Gaza Strip, the Times of Israel reported.

In an interview with the London-based Arabic newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat, Obama spoke of his enduring hope of seeing a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, although he admitted that it would be a "very difficult path forward."

"I will never give up on the hope for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, and the United States will never stop working to realize that goal," Obama said, detailing his expectations from both Israelis and Palestinians amid the establishment of a new government in Jerusalem.

"We look to the new Israeli government and the Palestinians to demonstrate — through policies and actions — a genuine commitment to a two-state solution,” he said. “Only then can trust be rebuilt and a cycle of escalation avoided." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.timesofisrael.com/obama-calls-on-israeli-government-to-seek-2-state-solution/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
