‘US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Thursday that her country still supports a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
The ambassador’s affirmation of the US’ longstanding stance comes just a day after President Donald Trump suggested that he is open to other solutions.
“First of all, the two-state solution is what we support. Anybody that wants to say the United States does not support the two-state solution – that would be an error,” Haley told reporters at the UN in New York.
“We absolutely support the two-state solution but we are thinking out of the box as well: which is what does it take to bring these two sides to the table; what do we need to have them agree on.”
On Wednesday, Trump suggested a break with the two-state solution, which is a longstanding bedrock of Washington and the international community’s policy for a settlement between Israel and the Palestinians.’
