Obama: Israel should return to 1967 borders

Israel should return to its 1967 borders, President Obama said today during remarks at the State Department.

 

“We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states,” Obama said. “The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their full potential, in a sovereign and contiguous state.”
