U.S. won’t impose peace deal on Israel, Clinton vows – Haaretz – Israel News

“Israelis and Palestinians alike must confront the reality that the status quo has not produced long-term security or served their interests, and accept their share of responsibility for reaching a comprehensive peace that will benefit both sides.”While outlining the United States’ goal of an end to the conflict, Clinton offered the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reassurance that the U.S. would not impose a settlement on the Middle East.”We know that we cannot force a solution. The parties themselves must resolve their differences,” she said.She added: “But we believe that through good-faith negotiations, the parties can mutually agree to an outcome which ends the conflict and reconciles the Palestinian goal of an independent and viable state based on the ?67 lines, with agreed swaps, and Israel’s goal of a Jewish state with secure and recognized borders that reflect subsequent developments and meet Israel’s security requirements.”
