After election spat, leaders agree to continue consultations on difficult path forwards to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; Jlem diplomatic sources say US must not impose a deal on Israel that jeopardizes the safety of Israelis.

 

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday to congratulate him on his reelection, while stressing US commitment to a two-state solution in Israel after Netanyahu attempted to backtrack from hard-line statements during his election campaign against the establishment of a Palestinian state.

 

In the call, the US president “reaffirmed the United States’ long-standing commitment to a two-state solution that results in a secure Israel alongside a sovereign and viable Palestine,” a statement issued by the White House said.

 

The call came as the White House continued to push back against Netanyahus pre-election rejection of a two-state solution to Palestinian-Israeli peace.
