US President Barack Obama's call for a Palestinian state to be based on 1967 lines with mutually agreed land swaps does not mean a return to the these borders, according to a Washington Post op-ed by Chicago mayor and former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel

"[Obama] reminded us that every president and many Israeli elected leaders have recognized that the borders are one starting point for negotiations, not the end point," Emanuel wrote. "That statement does not mean a return to 1967 borders."

Emanuel continued: "No workable solution envisions that. Land swaps offer the flexibility necessary to ensure secure and defensible borders and address the issue of settlements."
