US Ambassador to Israel Tom Nides calls Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s decision to express his support for a two-state solution in his speech before the UN General Assembly “courageous.”

“Peaceful coexistence is only way forward. As POTUS urged here in July, ‘two peoples, with deep & ancient roots in this land, living side by side in peace and security,'” Nides tweets.
