PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron will travel to the Middle East next spring, in a trip including Israel and the Palestinian territories, to help the peace process in the region and promote a two-state solution.
“We will continue our efforts with the United Nations to find a two-state solution, Israel and Palestine, living safely side-by-side within borders recognized by the international community, with Jerusalem at the capital of both states,” he told a gathering of French ambassadors.
Besides Israel and the Palestinian territories, Macron said the trip will include Lebanon and Jordan.
