Status quo on Israeli-Palestinian issue unsustainable: Barack Obama

Washington: US President Barack Obama has said that he keeps on being "fundamentally stressed" about the Israeli-Palestinian clash as business as usual is unsustainable, and risky for the general population in the district and in addition for America's national security.

"I keep on being altogether stressed over the Israeli-Palestinian issue. Furthermore, I'm stressed over it both in light of the fact that I think the present state of affairs is unsustainable, that it is hazardous for Israel, that it is terrible for Palestinians, it is awful for the area, and it's awful for America's national security," Obama told mediapersons yesterday in his last public interview as the US President.

He said when he came to office needing to do all that he could to support genuine peace talks amongst Israel and Palestine and that his organization contributed a great deal of vitality, time and exertion in these eight years.

"At last, what has dependably been clear is that we can't constrain the gatherings to touch base settled. What we can do is encourage, give a stage, empower. In any case, we can't drive them to do it," he said.

"In any case, in light of movements in Israeli legislative issues and Palestinian governmental issues, a rightward float in Israeli legislative issues; a debilitating of President Abbas' capacity to move and go out on a limb in the interest of peace in the Palestinian Territories, in light of the considerable number of risks that have developed in the area and the justifiable feelings of trepidation that Israelis may have about the bedlam and ascent of gatherings like ISIL (ISIS) and the weakening of Syria," Obama said.

"In light of each one of those things, what we in any event needed to do, understanding that the two gatherings wouldn't really land at a last status assention, is to protect the likelihood of a two-state arrangement," he said.

Focusing on that there is no contrasting option to a two-State arrangement, the active US President said that he has said this to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"I've said it within Israel. I've said it to Palestinians, also," he included.

"I don't perceive how this issues gets settled in a way that keeps up Israel as both Jewish and a vote based system, in light of the fact that on the off chance that you don't have two states, then in some shape or form you are augmenting an occupation, practically you wind up having one state in which a huge number of individuals are disappointed and work as worthless occupants. You can't call them subjects, essentially," Obama said.

"Thus the objective of the determination was to just say that the development of the settlements are making a reality on the ground that undeniably will make a two-state arrangement unthinkable," he attested.

Discussing Donald Trump's remain on the issue, Obama

stated, "so the President-elect will have his own strategy. The diplomat, or the contender for the ambassadorship clearly has altogether different perspectives than I do. That is their privilege".

"That is a piece of what occurs after races. Also, I think my perspectives are clear. We'll perceive how their approach runs its course," he said while reacting to a question on the Israeli strategy of the approaching Trump Administration.

In an obvious reference to Trump's arrangement to move the US international safe haven from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Obama said that sudden one-sided moves could be hazardous.

"I would prefer not to venture today what could wind up happening, however clearly it's an unpredictable situation. What we've found in the past is, when sudden, one-sided moves are made that address a portion of the center issues and sensitivities of either side, that can be unstable," he said.

Noticing that the United States is the greatest child on the piece, Obama said it is correct and suitable for another President to test old suppositions and reconsider the old methods for getting things done.

"In any case, in case will make huge moves in strategy, simply ensure you've thought it through and comprehend that there will be results, and activities normally make responses, thus you need to be purposeful about it," he said.

"You would prefer not to get things done without any preparation with regards to an issue this unstable," Obama said.
