Trump says ‘two-state solution works best’

The remarks, which were made during a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, shed light on the possible basis of a long-awaited peace initiative to be launched by the US administration between Israel and the Palestinians.

Trump gave his endorsement moments after Netanyahu praised the American-Israeli alliance as never being stronger “under your leadership.”

“You’ve changed history and you’ve touched our hearts,” Netanyahu told the president in his opening remarks.

Trump’s statement also comes in stark contrast to the response given to whether he supports the two-state solution during a meeting between the two leader in Washington in February 2017 during which he avoided explicitly backing the idea.

“I’m looking at two-state and one-state and I like the one that both parties like. I’m very happy with the one that both parties like,” he said at the time.
