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.
