WASHINGTON

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said, "the path to a two-state solution that fulfills the aspirations of the Palestinian people is through Jerusalem and Ramallah, not New York" in a press conference held in the US State Department on Wednesday.

In her answer to a question regarding Palestine's application to the UN as "non-observer state," she reminded her meeting with President Mahmoud Abbas the previous week and said, "we oppose Palestinian efforts to upgrade their status at the UN outside of the framework of negotiations to achieve a two-state solution, because no matter what happens at the United Nations, it will not produce the outcome that this government, this President, and certainly I strongly support."
She also said the only way to get a lasting solution was to commence direct negotiations, and that they needed an environment conducive to that and added, "we've urged both parties to refrain from actions that might in any way make a return to meaningful negotiations that focus on getting to a resolution more difficult."
