Merkel against unilaterally recognising Palestine as a state

The aim should be that both sides agree on a two-state solution - Israel and a future Palestine - co-existing side by side, Merkel told a news conference in Berlin after meeting Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel. #Business #United States #India #Japan #Brazil #France #Israel #Argentina #United Kingdom
