Chancellor Angela Merkel has reaffirmed Germany’s commitment for a “two-state solution” in a phone call with Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday.

“The Chancellor has underlined the continuing importance of a two-state solution that can be achieved through negotiations between the two parties,” her spokesman Steffen Seibert said in a statement.

“This must remain the goal of international efforts,” he stressed.

Merkel’s strong remarks in favor of a two-state solution came amid media reports that claimed U.S. President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan was likely to stop short of a full Palestinian statehood.

Washington Post reported on Sunday that Trump’s plan was expected to suggest a Palestinian “autonomy” rather than “sovereignty.”

On Monday, former European politicians slammed Trump for pursuing a “one-sided’ policy in the Zionist-Palestine conflict.

“Europe should reject any plan that does not create a Palestinian state alongside Zionist Entity with Jerusalem as the capital for both countries,” they said in a letter sent to the EU and European governments as well as British newspaper The Guardian.

The letter was signed by more than 30 former foreign ministers and prime ministers./aa
