LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday no Middle East peace plan was perfect, but the one put forward by U.S. President Donald Trump had the merit of being a two-state solution and should be considered by Palestinian leaders.

“No peace plan is perfect but this has the merit of a two-state solution, it is a two-state solution, it would ensure that Jerusalem is both the capital of Israel and of the Palestinian people,” Johnson said in parliament.
