Hezbollah says Trump-Netanyahu meet signalled end to Israeli-Palestinian negotiations

 

BEIRUT - Lebanese Hezbollah said on Thursday the outcome of US President Donald Trump's meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin

Netanyahu had effectively signalled an end to peaceful negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

 

"After what came out after the meeting between Netanyahu and Trump, I am not exaggerating if I say that yesterday there was a semi-official announcement of the death of the path of negotiations," Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a live televised speech.

  

"For the Israelis, there is no such thing as a Palestinian state," Nasrallah said, adding that the two-state solution was the only thing keeping the door to negotiations open.

 

Nasrallah warned that Hezbollah would put up fierce resistance in any future confrontation with Israel should Trump give it the green light to attack it inside Lebanon, but played down the prospects such a battle.
