"Mr President, Palestinian people deserve a sovereign state just as Israel has the right to live in peace. As a friend of Israel I support the recognition of Palestinian statehood. The move is not meant to undermine Israel’s position; on the contrary, its purpose is to rescue the two-state solution, which is the only alternative for Israel’s security. Today, after the failure of Kerry’s initiative, after violence in Jerusalem, it is time for the EU to assume more responsibility. Recognition of Palestine is a powerful diplomatic tool; we should use it wisely to help restart peace negotiations. Recognition of the Palestinians in the pre-1967 borders will strengthen all those Israelis and Palestinians who believe in the two-state solution. Mr Netanyahu may not like to hear it, but I am convinced that recognising Palestine could be one of the EU’s greatest contributions to Israeli security."@sk2
