"Having two states for two nations is the most basic interest of the Jewish people," the Knesset member told the 13th annual Herzliya Conference, adding that this solution is the "only way we can preserve the existence of a democratic Jewish state."


"There are only two options between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan (River) - two separate states or one state … just as the Palestinians need to know that there are Jews between the Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea, we need to know that there arePalestinians in the same place," Livni said at the opening of the panel on 'Is the Israeli-Palestinian impasse breakable?'


"In the negotiation room we need to stop talking about who has the greater right to be here," she said.


Touching on US President Barack Obama's upcoming visit to Israel, Livni said it offers a "wonderful opportunity for the new government of the State of Israel (…) to create that crucial dialogue between Israel and the United states."
