Mr. Nadav Goren, the Charge d’Affaires of Israel to Nigeria, has reportedly reaffirmed Israel’s support for a two-state solution to the ongoing conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
A statement by the Israeli Embassy in Abuja on Tuesday August night quoted Goren as saying this when the Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, Senator Shehu Sani, visited the embassy.
It was reported that the diplomat said, “We agree on the need for a peaceful solution in the region but differ on the means to achieve it.”
In order to achieve lasting peace, Goren added, “The Israelis and Palestinians must sit together at the negotiating table and decide their shared future.”
The Charge d’ Affairs also stressed that the Prime Minister of Israel, Mr. Benjamin c, would be willing to visit any country that would facilitate direct dialogue to find a lasting solution to the conflict.
Sani, who spoke to journalists after the visit, disclosed that he had earlier visited the Palestinian embassy.
He stated that the peace between Israel and Palestine would have a global impact, adding that both sides must not give up even though previous negotiations had been successful.
