What is the significance of the two-nation solution
The two-country solution has been a priority for decades in efforts to bring peace to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As part of this solution, an independent Palestinian nation will be established out of Israel – two nations for two people.

Most governments and world bodies, including the United Nations, have defined achieving a two-nation solution as government policy. This objective has been the basis of peace negotiations for decades.
