​We consistently call for an immediate end to all actions that act as key obstacles to peace and undermine the viability of the two-state solution, including terrorism, anti-Semitic incitement, settlement expansion, demolitions in the West Bank and the dire situation in Gaza.. We continue to believe the best way to achieve this is through direct negotiations between the parties, supported by the international community, leading towards a two-state solution with Jerusalem as a shared capital.
