Foreign Ministry: Netanyahu's denial of occupation is a blow to countries that adhere to 2-State Solution

RAMALLAH, Sunday, January 1, 2023 (WAFA) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said today that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's denial of the existence of the occupation is a blow to the countries that adhere to the Two-State Solution.

The Foreign Ministry said in a press statement that Netanyahu's position is a blow to the countries that take pride in their adherence to the Two-State Solution and the principles of human rights, and whose double standards provide protection for the Israeli occupation in international forums.

In his response to the United Nations General Assembly resolution demanding an ICJ advisory opinion on the nature of occupation, Netanyahu said "the Jewish people are not occupiers in their own land nor occupiers in our eternal capital Jerusalem and no U.N. resolution can distort that historical truth".

Netanyahu also said in a video message that Israel was not bound by the "despicable decision."
