Netanyahu: U.S. Plan Offers a Realistic Path to a Durable Peace

(Prime Minister's Office) At the presentation of the U.S. peace plan at the White House on Tuesday, Prime Minister Netanyahu told President Trump: "This is a historic day...because on this day, you became the first world leader to recognize Israel's sovereignty over areas in Judea and Samaria that are vital to our security and central to our heritage. And on this day, you too have chartered a brilliant future for Israelis, Palestinians and the region by presenting a realistic path to a durable peace." "So many well-intentioned plans...failed because they did not strike the right balance between Israel's vital security and national interests and the Palestinians' aspirations for self-determination....I have agreed to negotiate peace with the Palestinians on the basis of your peace plan....I look forward to working with you to achieve a peace that will protect Israel's security, provide the Palestinians with dignity and their own national life, and improve Israel's relations with the Arab world."
