Israeli President Reuven Rivlin in an interview with French publication Politique International said that it supported the creation of a Palestinian-Israeli Confederation as a peaceful solution to the middle East conflict.
Confederation, according to him, provides for exchange of territories and the existence of two parliaments and two constitutions, but only one army.
In an interview with Reuven Rivlin spoke of the Confederation of the two States, in connection with which his office issued a statement, according to which, the President remains opposed to the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state.
Former leftist politician Yossi Beilin also spoke in support of the Confederation, noting that such education, on the one hand, allows to establish a Palestinian state, but it does not require the dismantlement of Jewish settlements.
Minister of immigrant absorption ze’ev Elkin, for his part, noted that such initiative is unrealistic, as the Confederation with the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas is impossible.
