Israeli President Rivlin to PA President Abbas: "We Are Destined to Live Together"

(i24News) At UN headquarters in New York, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday appealed to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "We are destined to live together," Rivlin said. "It is up to us to end the conflict. Let us forget the past. Let us build confidence. There are possibilities to ensure a bright future for our people." Rivlin later told UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, "Peace between Israel and the Palestinians will never be achieved through anti-Israel decisions or commissions of inquiry. The bias against Israel in the UN institutions must end." "We wish to continue working with the UN to meet the humanitarian needs of the people of Gaza, with whom we have no conflict. However, any arrangement must include the return of our soldiers and civilians detained by the terrorist organization Hamas."
