Two states only way to secure Israeli-Palestinian peace, says Kerry

WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State John Kerry insisted on Wednesday the only way to secure a lasting peace between Israel and Palestinians is to negotiate a two-state solution to their conflict.

Explaining the US decision last week not to veto a UN Security Council vote to condemn Israeli settlement building, Kerry said: “The vote in the UN was about preserving the two-state solution.

“That’s what we were standing up for: Israel’s future as a Jewish and democratic state, living side-by-side in peace and security with its neighbours,” he said.

“The two-state solution is the only way to achieve a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians,” Kerry said, but warned that solution was in “serious jeopardy”.

However, hinting at the recent development in the UN meeting US president-elect Donald Trump in his latest tweet said that the United States “cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect”.

Giving a clear message to the Israeli administration, Trump said, “Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!”
