As Russia Invades Crimea… Obama Urges Israeli Prime Minister to Seek Peace
You just can’t make this stuff up…
As Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine, President Barack Obama is urging Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to “seek peace” with the Palestinians.
Israel National News reported:
One day ahead of his meeting Monday with Prime MinisterBinyamin Netanyahu, U.S.President Barack Obama is urging the Israeli leader to make peace with the Palestinian Authority (PA).
Speaking to Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Goldberg in an interview published Sunday, Obama warned that time was running outto negotiate a peace agreement.
Obama further claimed that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas “is sincere about his willingness to recognize Israel and its right to exist.”
“We are coming to a point, though, over the next couple of months where the parties are going to have to make some decisions about how they move forward,” he said. “And my hope and expectation is that, despite the incredible political challenges, that both Prime Minister Netanyahu and Abbas are able to reach past their differences and arrive at a framework that can move us to peace.”
