No two-state solution during Obama presidency, White House assesses

WASHINGTON — The White House has made the "realistic assessment" that a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians will not come to pass during the remainder of Barack Obama’s presidency, senior administration officials said on Thursday night.

Preparing to host Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu next week, the president’s aides also cast doubt on the prospect of direct negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian leadership. Instead, Obama will ask Netanyahu to put forward ideas for a path forward "in the absence of negotiations" to ensure the two-state solution remains viable.
