Macron Swipes at Trump at UN: Trampling on Palestinians Won’t Resolve Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

French President Emmanuel Macron told the UN General Assembly on Tuesday that there is no credible alternative to the two-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, adding that unilateral initiatives will not work.

Trampling on the Palestinians and pushing unilateral initiatives will not resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Macron said taking a swipe at his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump’s policy on the issue.

"What can resolve the crisis between Israel and Palestine? Not unilateral initiatives, nor trampling on the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to legitimate peace. "There is no credible alternative to the two-state solution."
