Justice of the International Court of Justice (ICJ)
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"It has always been an undisputed premise of the peace in the Middle East that the twin principles of '[w]ithdrawal of Israel armed forces from territories occupied in the  conflict' and '[t]ermination of all claims or states of belligerency and respect for and acknowledgement of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of every State in the area and their right to live in peace within secure and recognized boundaries free from threats or acts of force' have to form the basis of the peace. Security Council resolution 242 (1967) has consecrated these principles in so many words. The 'Roadmap,' endorsed by Security Council resolution 1515 (2003), is a blueprint for proceeding on the basis of these principles."
