A few weeks ago, we were told that the United Kingdom and the European Union were the last countries left in the world that could be left standing after the United Nations and the World Bank decided that a two-state solution was no longer viable.
Now, we are told that there are just three remaining nations left in a list of nations that includes the United Arab Emirates, Iraq, and North Korea.
What could be the final destination of these nations?
What will their fate be?
The answer is not that clear.
The U.S. has not abandoned the idea of a two state solution.
In fact, it continues to work with the U.N. to negotiate a solution to this crisis.
However, a number of factors could be driving this decision.
First, the United states is very clear that it is not in favor of a peace deal that involves the destruction of the state of Israel.
Second, there are many countries who would prefer that a peaceful solution be reached to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Third, the Trump administration is strongly in favor with the two-states-per-underground solution that would end the conflict.
In an interview with the BBC in February, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that he believed that Israel should “be part of any deal that is agreed to in the region” as long as the peace deal includes a Palestinian state.
Pompeo also stated that “the only way to end this crisis is with an Israeli-backed Palestinian state,” adding that he would be “very happy to make that happen.”
In the meantime, the U, as a global leader, has an obligation to continue to work to create a two states-per-“underground” solution.
If a solution is not forthcoming, then it would be up to the United nations to provide the framework for a viable peace deal.
While the United governments and other international partners have shown a willingness to work towards a two States-per.-underground settlement, it remains to be seen if a political deal can be reached.
For the moment, it is unclear whether the U of A and the Trump administrations will be able to accomplish their objective of a peaceful two states solution in the coming months.
