November 11, 2010 (KATAKAMI / JPOST) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in New York Thursday, on a day when Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told supporters at a memorial rally for his predecessor Yasser Arafat in Ramallah that “making peace is more important than anything else.”
Prior to entering the meeting, Clinton and Netanyahu posed for photographs and spoke briefly to assembled press.
“The prime minister and president Abbas are both very committed to a two-state solution and we are going to find a way forward,” Clinton said, according to an AFP report.
“We’re going to be talking about everything and I’ll be saving my comments beyond what I’ve already said for my talks with the prime minister,” said the secretary of state.
Netanyahu responded in kind, saying he was “serious” about restarting the peace talks, which have been stalled since September following the end of the ten month settlement construction moratorium.
“We’ll be talking about how to resume and continue this process to get a historic agreement with peace and security between us and the Palestinians,” Netanyahu reportedly said.
He continued: “We also hope to broaden it to many other Arab countries… we are quite serious about doing it and we want to get on with it.” (*)
