US House okays 2-state solution for Palestine

AFP, Washington

The US House of Representatives on Friday threw its weight behind a two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians, in a warning to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as he mulls annexing the West Bank. Passed largely along party lines, the House resolution also marked a shot across the bow to President Donald Trump, who has stood squarely behind Netanyahu.

In its first-ever resolution on a West Bank annexation, the House said that a two-state solution “can both ensure the state of Israel’s survival as a Jewish and democratic state and fulfill the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people for a state of their own.”

The United States should “discourage steps by either side that would put a peaceful end to the conflict further out of reach,” the resolution said.

Such steps include “unilateral annexation of territory or efforts to achieve Palestinian statehood status  outside the framework of negotiations with Israel,” it said.
