“What the Palestinians moved to do today in the U.N., I think is in basic line with the strategy of a two-state solution,” Olmert told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday.
The peace process is completely stalled at the moment, but Olmert said Israel must move rapidly toward a two-state solution. “Time is running out for Israel more than for the Palestinians,” he said.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who supports a two-state solution, said Thursday’s vote “underscores the urgency of a resumption of meaningful negotiations.”
“I urge the parties to renew their commitment to a negotiated peace,” Ban said.
