US insists on Palestinian statehood through negotiationstext_fields
Washington: The US has insisted that a Palestinian state should be created through negotiations with Israel.
State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki Tuesday reiterated the US' stance on the issue as the British Parliament passed a non-binding resolution Monday offering diplomatic recognition to Palestinian statehood as Sweden did earlier this month.
"... while we still support the Palestinian statehood, we believe that process needs to be reached through a two-state solution," Psaki added.
US Secretary of State John Kerry, while attending an international donor conference on Gaza's re-construction in Cairo Sunday, called for a resumption of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
Kerry had brought the two sides together for renewed talks in July 2013, but the negotiations broke down in April this year.
