NNA - Prime Minister Saad Hariri praised the closing statement of the "Conference for Peace in the Middle East" held in Paris, which renewed the commitment to the two-state solution for the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Hariri said on "Twitter": "We thank France for organizing the Conference for Peace in the Middle East today and we thank President François Hollande for his just and courageous stance".


He added: "There is no solution except based on the Arab peace initiative adopted in Beirut and the establishment of the Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital."


Hariri stressed that the Israeli settlement policy aims at imposing a fait accompli that would thwart any peace process. He also praised the adoption by the Paris closing statement of the United Nations Security Council resolution 2334, which condemns the settlement policy.


He concluded: "Lebanon will always adhere to the Arab unanimity and the full rights of the Palestinian brothers, especially the right of return. We will always remain against the settlement in Lebanon in accordance with our Constitution."
