It’s not possible to finalize a deal for a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during the period when this government is led by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid told Channel 11 on Thursday.
“There is no agreement for this within the government,” Lapid said.
Two states “won’t happen within this composition [rotation] of the government,” he explained, adding that he believes in this resolution himself.

Reporters asked if this would change after the government rotation when he replaces Bennett as prime minister.

“It could be,” Lapid said.
He spoke in advance of Bennett’s upcoming meeting next week in Washington with US President Joe Biden that will deal in part with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Lapid reiterated that he has not spoken with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. Neither has Bennett.
Security conversations are ongoing, he said, adding that such calls were not banned.
Defense Minister Benny Gantz has spoken by telephone with Abbas as has President Issac Herzog.
According to Channel 11, that call was made with the government’s consent.
