Clinton: Palestinian state achieved through negotiations is inevitable – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

Clinton said that the United States is serious about pushing forward a peace agreement and laying the foundations for a future Palestinian state.”We will deepen our support of the Palestinians’ state-building efforts,because we recognize that a Palestinian state, achieved through negotiations, is inevitable,” Clinton said, adding that “the long-term population trends that result from the occupation are endangering the Zionist vision of a Jewish and democratic state in the historic homeland of the Jewish people.”

U.S. Middle East peace envoy George Mitchell will head back to the region next week, and Clinton said diplomacy would now concentrate on a range of “core issues” — all of which have proved difficult to resolve.

These include borders and security, settlements, water, refugees, and Jerusalem itself,
