CAIRO: The Palestinian-Israeli conflict requires a two-state solution, the Arab League and Egypt reaffirmed on Thursday, distancing themselves from a move away from that commitment by US President Donald Trump.

Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit affirmed that the conflict “requires a comprehensive and just peace based on a two-state solution with an independent Palestinian state on...1967 borders with its capital in Jerusalem.”

The Arab League statement said he and Abul Gheit “agreed that the two-state solution remains the real way to achieving” peace.

Gheit’s statement came after he met UN chief Antonio Guterres in Cairo.

Egypt was committed to a two-state solution, a foreign ministry spokesman told the state news agency.

Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) secretary-general Saeb Erekat said the PLO remained committed to two states and would oppose any system that discriminated against Palestinians.

President Mahmoud Abbas said his government was “ready to deal positively” with the White House.
