U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry spoke about Israeli settlements and warned that the conflict between the two States of Israel and Palestine is growing.
Kerry defended the United States decision last week to abstain from voting and not to veto condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. "This is the only way to achieve a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians."
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said about saying Kerry is "skewed against Israel". "For more than an hour, Kerry is obsessed with sharing calculations and barely touched the root of the conflict - the Palestinian opposition from the Jewish state," Netanyahu said. Netanyahu also made it clear about their friendship by the new administration of Donald trump, saying: "Israel looks forward to working with trump to mitigate the damage from this resolution and, ultimately, to abolish it."
Kerry urged Israelis and Palestinians to take steps showing the seriousness of their commitment to both countries, such as complying with the terms of the Oslo accords. He put forward 6 principles that should serve as a guide for future negotiations, including secure borders, for both Israeli and Palestinian state, " and recognition of Jerusalem as "the internationally recognized capital of two States. "Kerry also ruled out the possibility that the US will join forces to dictate the terms of peace in the UN Security Council, or the fact that the United States recognize a Palestinian state without negotiations.
