U.S. President Joe Biden addresses a joint interview with Australia’s Prime Minister Anthony Albanese in the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington, U.S.,Oct 25, 2023.
WASHINGTON–President Joe Biden Wednesday worried the United States thinks the dispute in between Israel and Hamas need to end with a vision of a “two-state solution.”
“There’s no going back to the status quo as it stood on Oct. 6, that means Hamas can no longer terrorize Israel and use Palestinians as human shields” Biden stated. “It also means, when this crisis is over there has to be a vision of what comes next, and, in our view, it has to be a two-state solution.”
Achieving this, Biden stated, implies “a concentrated effort for all the parties — Israelis, Palestinians, regional partners, global leaders — to put us on a path toward peace.”
Biden spoke in the White House Rose Garden, standing next to Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese at an interview after their bilateral conference Wednesday afternoon, and ahead of a state supper.
