Joint List MK Ahmad Tibi told The Jerusalem Post on Monday that on his recent visit to Jordan he told the parliamentary committee on “Palestine” that Israel does not support the establishment of a Palestinian state.

Tibi returned from his three-day visit to Jordan on Sunday and was the first Arab MK officially invited to visit the Jordanian parliament.

“All of the ministers in the Palestinian government support the two-state solution, while on the other hand, no minister in the Israeli government supports the establishment of a Palestinian state,” the deputy Knesset speaker told the Jordanian parliament.

Therefore, he continued, “The chances of an agreement between the two countries with the government of [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is close to zero.”
