US 'absolutely' supports two-state solution to Israeli-Palestine conflict

The United States absolutely supports a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and anyone who thinks it does not is in "error", according to US ambassador Nikki Haley.

The Trump administration's new UN envoy said that "we are thinking out of the box as well, which is: What does it take to bring these two sides to the table? What do we need to have them agree on?".

Her comments were far more forceful in support of a two-state solution than President Donald Trump's on Wednesday.

He said: "I'm looking at two-state and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like."

Ms Haley said the solution to the conflict has to come from the Israelis and Palestinians but she stressed: "We absolutely support a two-state solution."
