Netanyahu and entourage are headed to Poland for a high level meeting. In advance his office put out a joint communique which said, inter alia, “Unilateral steps by either party are counterproductive to achieving a sustainable lasting peace,”
Netanyahu took issue with this statement because, according to JPOST:
The implication in that statement is that Netanyahu was taking a stand
against construction in West Bank settlements, a position which would
complicate his political standing at home.
Yesterday, JPOST reported that:
As part of their joint statement on Middle East issues, Poland and
Israel will agree that the latter’s legitimacy, the security of its
citizens, and the Palestinian right to a state should never be in doubt.
I could not find the actual communique and no one reported on it.
But Israel National News published a news item today under the title “PM Backs Away from Statement w/Poland Endorsing PA Statehood”. Unfortunately I could find nothing in the item to back this up.
