Netanyahu ‘hopes US won’t back Palestinian statehood via UN’

In an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, Netanyahu says he hopes the Obama administration is not looking at backing Palestinian statehood via the UN.

“I hope that’s not true, and I think that President Obama has said time and time again, as I’ve said, that the only path to a peace agreement is an agreement, a negotiated agreement.,” Netanyahu says.

“You can’t impose it,” he tells Fox News. “You can’t force the people of Israel, who’ve just elected me by a wide margin, to bring them peace and security, to secure the State of Israel, to accept terms that would endanger the very survival of the State of Israel. I don’t think that’s the direction of American policy. I hope it’s not.”

The full interview will be aired later tonight.
