First Trump approval of two-state solution, peace plan in 2-3 months

President Donald Trump said for the first time that he “likes a two-state solution” during a joint news conference at UN Center with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during their meeting on Wednesday. He said that his peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians will be released in two-to-three months provided it is “good for both parties.” Israel will have to do something good for “the other side,” he said, after US recognition of Jerusalem. Trump praised Israel’s independent actions in its self-defense in a difficult part of the world. “We are with you, we are with Israel, he said.” Netanyahu thanked Trump for his strong positions against the “corrupt regime” of Iran and declared Israel would continue to do what is necessary against threats from Iran and Lebanon. The two leaders spent the first 10 minutes of the meeting one-on-one before being joined by advisers.  Trump dodged a reporter’s question about the Il-20 plane crash crisis between Israel and Russia.
