U.S. reiterates two-state solution to Israeli-Palestinian war
The U.S. says it is committed to promoting sustainable peace between the Israeli and Palestinian people as well as the adoption of a two-state solution to end the war between the countries.
David Greene, chargé d’affaires in Nigeria, said.
Mr Greene said the crisis is a source of concern for the U.S.
“I think that violence in Gaza right now with Israel is broadly very distressing and undermines everyone’s hopes and aspirations. I think what everyone in the world does or ought to be able to agree is that what we want is for the people of the region – Palestine and Israel – to live in peace and security and safety with dignity,” stated the American deputy ambassador in Nigeria.
Mr Greene added, “This is something we thought (about) for a very long time with our international partners. It is something we must agree on. I see, for example, the progress calls for a two-state solution. Secretary of State Antony Blinken restated our commitment to working toward the two-state solution based on the 1967 mutual agreement plan on land swap.”
The envoy recalled that President Joe Biden made statements several times and Mr Blinken on the U.S. views about the conflict.
Mr Greene stated, “It is a kind of violence that Nigerians are rather familiar with (from) Boko Haram and other terrorist organisations. It is those that do not agree that will abuse the dignity, peace, and security of life of the people in that region.
“So, the U.S. is committed to doing everything we can, and I think we have had a significant role in getting to the paths of what or whatever it may be right now. There have been exchanges of hostages.”
He stressed that the U.S. government is doing its “part to find ways to move beyond this cycle of violence and allow for Israelis, Palestinians and other people in the region” to live in peace, security, and dignity.
“It is not to have their livelihood threatened by vile acts of terrorists who offer no reasonable alternative,” said Mr Greene.
