Israel needs to reach peace with the Palestinians to avoid becoming a binational state, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday.
He stressed, however, that the core of Israels conflict with the Palestinians was not territory, but rather a Palestinian unwillingness to recognize Israels legitimacy within any boundaries.
Netanyahus comments at a meeting with top Foreign Ministry officials came amid signs of revived motion on the Palestinian track. He made similar comments during a meeting later in the day with five US congressmen, giving the impression that he was staking out a pre-negotiation position.
Were engaged right now in an effort that we appreciate, led by [US] President [Barack] Obama and Secretary [of State John] Kerry to restart the peace negotiations between us and the Palestinians, Netanyahu told the delegation headed by Rep. Ed Royce (R-California).
Were eager to do it; we have no preconditions and we think there shouldnt be any preconditions to restart negotiations, he said.
He added, however, that for the negotiations to succeed, they have to rest on two basic pillars: One is that the Palestinians recognize the Jewish state, and second that Israel has solid security arrangements.
At the Foreign Ministry, meanwhile, Netanyahu said the root of the conflict was not territorial.
It started long before 1967.
