Congressman Lowenthal Statement On President Trump Two-State Solution Comments

Washington, D.C., February 16, 2017 | comments
Congressman Alan Lowenthal (CA-47) today issued the following statement regarding President Donald Trump's remarks during a joint White House press conference yesterday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:

“A two-state solution has been the foundational bipartisan foreign policy stance of the U.S. for decades and it is my sincere belief it is the only rational path toward peace. The one-state alternative the President so glibly hinted he may adopt would do nothing to ensure Israel’s long-term security or enable Palestinian aspirations for their own state. Foreign policy by trial balloon is a dangerous gamble and does nothing to resolve the Israel-Palestinian conflict. A lasting peace can only come through direct, two-party talks between Israelis and Palestinians. Not through off-handed and ill-advised comments by President Trump.”
