Sunday, September 25, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet in new York with the Republican candidate for President of the United States Donald trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
According to published information, the first Netanyahu will talk with trump. This meeting will take place in one of the new York offices of the presidential candidate. A few hours later, the Prime Minister will meet with Hillary Clinton. The arrangement of these meetings was reached last Saturday, and the negotiations were conducted separately with staff of each of the candidates.
A few hours before the meeting to the Second channel ITV has published the statement of the trump adviser for relations with Israel by David Friedman. «Israel should not withdraw from Judea and Samaria to preserve the Jewish character of the state,» said Friedman at the meeting with the head of the district of Samaria Council Yossi Dagan. – There is a tendency of outflow of the Arab population from Judea and Samaria, but no one captures the left, and therefore none of the statisticians has no idea how many Arabs live there.»
«The claim that Israel will lose its Jewish majority if it is to keep Judea and Samaria, incorrectly, it just does not fit with the numbers,» added David Friedman.
Recall that before the election of the President of the United States Republican party officially withdrew from his foreign policy platform paragraph that talked about supporting a Palestinian state.
A similar statement was made by the former new York mayor Rudy Giuliani, witopia at the conference, the Israeli-American community (IAC). «The US should abandon support for the idea of a Palestinian state,» said Giuliani. –
To support this proposal will only be possible when the Palestinian leadership prove that it is able to manage.
Giuliani also touched on the issue about the agreement with Iran. «I hope that the President will be elected, which will cancel the agreement with Iran. You cannot rely on this country, I never relied on it and do not recommend to others.»
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an interview to the Second channel ITV reiterated that he is ready for the establishment of a Palestinian state. On 23 September in new York, Netanyahu held talks with U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry, in particular, to discuss the likelihood of any new peace initiatives in his last months of Barack Obama in the White house. «We believe in the possibility of progress in talks to end the tenure of President Obama,» said John Kerry after a meeting with Prime Minister of Israel.
