Clinton Support Two-State Solution

WASHINGTON FREE BEACON — Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton reaffirmed her call for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Sunday and added it is in Israel’s best interest to provide greater support for the aspirations of the Palestinian people.

“I happen to think that moving toward a two-state solution, trying to provide for support for the aspirations of the Palestinian people is in the long-term best interest of Israel, as well as the region and, of course, the people themselves,” Clinton told Jake Tapper on CNN’s State of the Union.

Tapper had asked Clinton to comment on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recent statement that he would be neutral when it comes to negotiating the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R., Texas) subsequent criticism of Trump’s comment.

Clinton told Tapper both men “missed the mark” with their comments because supporting Israel and working toward a two-state solution are not mutually exclusive.
