Netanyahu to EU: I support two-state solution

Bibi Netanyahu

Prime Minister Netanyahu told the EU foreign policy chief that his position ‘hasn’t changed, ‘ and that Israel is taking steps to ease life for Palestinians.

The declaration was made at the outset of the meeting with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini in Jerusalem: “I want to reiterate my commitment to peace. We want a peace that would end the conflict once and for all. My position hasn’t changed. I don’t support a one-state solution. I don’t believe this is a solution at all. I support the vision of two states for two peoples – a demilitarized Palestinian state that recognizes the Jewish state.”

Netanyahu walked back from his controversial election day comments that a Palestinian state will not be established on his watch. With these statements, Netanyahu was eyeing settlers and right wingers, hoping to win their votes for his Likud Party.

Yet Netanyahu insists, “Palestinians must recognize Israel as a Jewish State. I am committed to peace. We have taken steps to help the Palestinians, we will continue with these measures. I want a peace that will end the conflict once and for all.”

Netanyhu used the same wording from his 2009 speech at Bar-Ilan University, in which he first expressed support for the two-state solution.

The Israeli Prime Minister made Wednesday’s statements despite the fact that the basic guidelines of his new coalition do not include any intention of establishing a Palestinian state.
