Netanyahu: I will examine the American peace plan with an ‘open mind’
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declined to state whether he supports a two-state solution during his CNN interview on Friday, instead stating that he prefers to focus on the content rather than the label.
“I discovered that if you use labels you don’t get far, since different people mean different things when they say ‘states’. I would rather talk about content than labels,” said Netanyahu.
He clarified that “Israeli forces must control security” and that without such measures, “Islamic terrorists will taker over that place: ISIS, Hamas, Iran or all of them combined”.
The interview followed the recent statement made by US President Donald Trump that he “likes a two-state solution.”
