Two-state Solution

Bin Farhan underscored that the majority of the international community believes that the two-state solution is the best and just solution for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

However, they stand idly regarding the matters that may undermine the two-state solution, such as Israel’s continuous settlement expansion.

The Minister commended the peace efforts made by the European countries such as Spain to push towards the two-state solution emphasizing that the least they can do is to condemn Israel’s failure to abide by its commitments and then take strict steps such as imposing sanctions on some officials who violate human rights.

Moreover, he stressed that the Palestinians have the full right to self-determination and an internationally recognized Palestinian State.

Prince Faisal also delved into the current situation in Yemen, confirming their unwavering support to the political dialogue.

“We need to move to a better state because the situation in Yemen is still difficult, especially on the economic level,” Prince Faisal added.
