Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"Taking this as their basis, Russia and the USA intend to exert maximum efforts in order to realize this vision of a negotiated settlement of the conflict, which includes the existence of two states - Israel and Palestine - living in peace and security within recognized borders. This has to become part of an all-embracing settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict on the basis of UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338, the Madrid principles, the formula land for peace', and also existing agreements and accords. We share the kind of approaches which have been reflected in UN Security Council Resolution 1397."
