Rep. Carson: United Nations Vote a Step Toward Two-State Solution

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman André Carson released this evening the following statement regarding the United Nations' vote to recognize Palestine as a "non-member observer state":

For generations, the Middle East has been torn apart by conflict and violence. While militaries and extremists have waged war and stalled efforts for peace, innocent people have suffered. Today's vote in the United Nations regarding a Palestinian state is a step toward a two-state solution that has been pursued for decades by millions of Palestinians and Israelis. While the process by which this UN decision was reached may be questioned, we cannot lose sight of the end goal--two states living in peace, acceptance and security. This should be our focus as deliberations and diplomacy continue.
