Germany: Israel-Palestine Conflict Can Only End via Two-State Solution

Israel-Palestine war, referred to as the world’s “most intractable conflict”, which has been going since the 20th century has only one way out, i.e. a two-state solution, said Germany’s top diplomat on Sunday.

Reaffirming his nation’s support, Heiko Maas during a press conference in Amman with his Jordanian counterpart said, “We are still in agreement that reaching a two-state solution through negotiations is the only solution.”

Washington has also been midst this conflict for a very long period of time, with the US’ Middle East peace envoy, Jared Kushner working on a plan to settle the Israel-Palestine dispute. The US’ plans though have been deemed as extremely biased, especially after it recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

Although the White House is gearing up to roll out the economic aspects of its plans at a conference in Bahrain later this month, it remains a mystery when the political details will emerge out.

The Palestinians, however, have already billed the moves made by the US as irrationalized, stating that the work by President Donald Trump’s administration is heavily influenced.

“We and Germany agree that the two-state solution is the only way to end the conflict,” Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said. Mass and Safadi met a day after the US envoy to Israel, David Friedman was quoted by the New York Times as stating that Israel had the “right” to annex at least parts of the occupied West Bank.

Besides, both the ministers laying due diligence over the immigration issue for the Palestinian refugees, also spoke on the importance of United Nations. Their statement came just a week after the US called for barring its roughly $300 million annual donation.

Israel occupied the West Bank in the 1967 six-day war and built the settlements in the region, which led to the conflict between two sides. Though a number of UN resolutions have endorsed creation of separate states for the Jews and Palestinians, but no such solution has yet been reached yet.

Meanwhile, Kushner has also bomb-dropped a hint that he will not entertain international calls for creation of a separate Palestinian state, leaving questions over establishment of peace in between the war-ridden nations.
