It is the first time since 2016 that an Israeli leader has spoken about the two-state solution at the United Nations General Assembly.
Future Palestinian state to exist alongside Israel must be peaceful, not based on terrorism, Israel’s prime minister says Yair Lapid at the UN General Assembly on Thursday afternoon, shortly before returning to Israel.
If that condition is met, then the best way forward is “an agreement with the Palestinians based on two states for two peoples,” Lapid said. This “is the right thing for Israel’s security, for Israel’s economy and for the future of our children.”
It’s the first time since 2016 that an Israeli leader spoke about the two-state solution at the United Nations General Assembly.
“Despite all the obstacles, even today the vast majority of Israelis support the vision of this two-state solution. I am one of them,” he clarified.
“Peace is not a compromise. It is the most courageous decision we can make. Peace is not weakness. It incorporates in itself all the power of the human spirit,” he noted.
