“France is updating its position on the Israeli-Palestinian issue and does not rule out the possibility of a different solution from that of two states.” This was stated by diplomatic sources in Paris.
“No one knows what will be in the end – one state, two states, with or without Jerusalem. What we prefer and think will be best is a two state solution. Does that mean we can not agree on something else? Not at all. We can accept Any solution that the Palestinians and Israelis will agree on. “
Officially, the French Foreign Ministry adhered to its position: “A sustainable solution to the conflict requires the establishment of two states based on the 1967 lines with Jerusalem as a capital.” Observers, however, point out that in his speech at the UN General Assembly, President Emanuel Macron spoke of “crucial negotiations that will allow the Palestinians to finally enjoy their rights” – but did not mention the two countries.
