Clinton says Palestinian state in Israel's interests
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Hillary Clinton, on her first visit to Israel as U.S. secretary of state, said on Tuesday that establishing a Palestinian state was in the best interests of the Jewish state and a two-state solution was "inescapable."
"We happen to believe that moving towards a two-state solution is in Israel's best interests," she told a news conference with Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni. She also said: "It is our assessment that eventually, the inevitability of working towards a two-state solution is inescapable."
