In Controversial UN Speech, Israeli PM Lapid Calls for Two-State Solution
For the first time in more than a decade, an Israeli prime minister has re-committed to a two-state solution with the Palestinians. But his comments didn’t sit well with many Israelis.
Lapid told the UN General assembly that Israel’s economic and military strength enables it to strive for peace with the Arab world, including the Palestinians.
“An agreement with the Palestinians, based on the two states for two peoples, is the right thing for Israel's security, for Israel's economy and for the future of our children,” he said.
