Storyline

Egyptian experts on Palestinian-Israeli affairs on Thursday said that the "two-state solution" is the only way to solve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and what U.S. President Donald Trump said was a violation of both the international consensus and the UN Resolution 181.

They made the remarks in the wake of Trump's attitude towards Palestinian-Israeli conflict seemed to have changed when he said he is open to both "one-state solution" and "two-state solution" during his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday in Washington D.C.

"The 'two-state solution' is the sole possible option as countries in the world all support it. An independent Palestine state, with its capital in East Jerusalem, should be established in order to realize the rights of the Palestinian people, national self-determination and regional equality of the peoples," said Osama Shaath, an expert in Palestinian-Israeli affairs.

"It is a must to establish two independent and amicable states, Palestine and Israel. If the US abandoned 'two-state solution' but adopted 'one-state solution', it will definitely aggravate the instability of the Middle East," said Mahmoud Mohi, a journalist with the Youm7 newspaper.

U.S. President Trump also said that he has been considering to relocating the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, fueling even more uncertainties in Palestine-Israel peace process between.

However, experts predicted that the solution will be delayed as it will damage the America's interests in the region.

"I don't think that the U.S. government will execute the solution (of relocating the U.S. embassy) and perhaps Trump will withdraw the solution as it is out of the consideration for the US to maintain the strategic relations and interests with Arabic countries in the region," said Shaath.
