US Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio said on Friday that he doesn't believe conditions currently exist for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"I just don't see the conditions right now for that," Rubio said at a news conference at a Jewish temple in West Palm Beach, Florida. "Two-state solutions involves the idea that there are two parties that are willing to agree to that, and there are not."

"I think Israel is willing to be incredibly accommodating and have proven their willingness to do so," he said. "The Palestinian Authority has never shown any willingness, in fact they have turned down some very generous offers in the past."
