Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi reaffirmed her commitment to the State of Israel and the resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through a two-state solution in an interview with the Washington Post.

Aired May 8 on C-SPAN, Pelosi said she sees the establishment of the State of Israel “as one of the greatest accomplishments of the 20th Century. It was a political, official establishment of a country and it was so exciting.”
She told the reporter that Israel - “America’s most serious friend in the Middle East” - have shared values, and therefore “Israel’s security is very important to us.”


A lot of debate in recent months about issue of Israel. You are leader of Democratic party, when think about recent violence on Gaza Strip, what is Democratic view of what has happened there?


She then noted that “some things have been said that are not a reflection of our consensus and we have pointed that out.”


Pelosi said that the world has been waiting for what US President Donald Trump has called the “imminent” release of a “deal of the century” peace plan. In the meantime, “many of us support a two-state solution with a secure Jewish state and a state for the Palestinians.”
