Kerry: Two state solution could be dead within two years

April 17, 2013 23:30

US Secretary of State John Kerry warned on Wednesday that the two-state solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict could be dead within two year.

“I believe the window for a two-state solution is shutting,” Kerry told the House Foreign Affairs Committee. “I think we have some period of time, a year, a year and a half, or two years or its over,” he said.

He spoke amidst a renewed United States drive to re-kindle direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians which have been largely frozen since late 2008.

US President Barack Obama was in Israel, along with Kerry last month to speak with Israeli and Palestinian leaders. Kerry returned again last week, and promised to come back shortly.
