Israel to Solana: Conflict can only be resolved through dialogue

The Foreign Ministry rejected Sunday a call by EU foreign policy chief Javer Solana on the UN to recognize a Palestinian state by a certain deadline even if Israelis and Palestinians have not reached agreement among themselves.

 

"According to UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338, the Road Map and the treaties signed between the two sides, a solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can only be reached through negotiations," said the ministry in a statement. (Roni Sofer)
