Fayyad: Define how you envision the two-state solution

January 26, 2012 18:12

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad called on Israel to define how it envisions a future Palestinian state, saying that some 18 years after the Oslo Accords, "it is about time to know what [Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu] means when he speaks of the two-state solution." Fayyad was speaking at the Davos Economic Forum in Switzerland Thursday, on a panel with President Shimon Peres.

The Palestinians, he said, are "looking for an independent, viable state on the territory occupied in 1967," on a macro level.

On a micro level, he said, he would like to see Israel "allow the Palestinian society and people to work, develop and live in that area where the state of Palestine is going to emerge," putting emphasis on restrictions placed in Area C.
