Barak backs Jerusalem partition plan – Israel News, Ynetnews

Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Friday night said he supported a plan to divide Jerusalem, as suggested by former United States President Bill Clinton in 2000.

 

During a speech at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy’s seventh annual forum in Washington, Barak noted that the western part of the capital and the Jewish neighborhood belonged to Israel, while neighborhoods with dense Arab populations should be under Palestinian control.

Barak reiterated the need for a two-state solution and noted that the world is no longer willing to accept Israel’s continuous control over another nation.
