after years of animosity there planning to form a joint governments have previously been seen the hoped for russia's support so over the weekend their representatives of the meeting with russian diplomats and are now meeting with the foreign minister himself to go up north is said about russia as i'm active member of the security council the united nations security council and the middle east quartet which also includes the united states the european union. thing that. this is a this is a great event and those that all political forces in palestine have to take part in this election now also another issue on the table here is the discussion for the preconditions of an independent palestine in the independent palestinian state and the foreign minister is also commented on that praising the fact that the
9:03 am
two most powerful political movements finally were able to reach common ground. because this is if you choose the creation of an independent palestinian state to resolving the israeli palestinian conflict and of course the palestinian leadership to enjoy the support of palestinians during negotiations unity is important for any nation and is even more important for the palestinian people who are working towards a fair solution to create their own state in accordance with decisions of the u.n. the middle east quartet and the arab peace initiative. fatah and hamas say they are planning to take the matter of an independent palestine to the u.n. in september and their representatives have said that russia has reportedly promised its support on this issue. the u.s. president barack obama has also come out to explain whose version of where the israeli palestinian peace process should be moving but he also took care to remain
9:04 am
cautious in haiti. well this whole do stude obviously has been going on for decades and it's pretty clear now that the international community including the quartet supports only one solution and that is where israel and palestine become two independent states and just previously barak obama . that's a good idea publicly he met with the israeli prime minister and said god leads you to the borders of these two independent countries should be based on those in one thousand and sixty seven basically meaning that to the border line should go through jerusalem while this idea was we just did by the israeli prime minister who said that such a scenario would leave his country defenseless against palestine so after that doing another meeting with israel's biggest the lobby in the united states barack obama said that the borders don't believe you have to be exactly as they were in
9:05 am
one nine hundred sixty seven so that caused many analysts say the u.s. is now trying to sit on two chairs at the same time trying to please both israel and the international community which is actually creating even more tension and for more on that he was my colleague in asia john. when addressing the powerful pro israel lobby here in washington president obama has made sure to reaffirm the i'm wavering support of the united states he also made sure his thursday speech did not leave anyone confortable in that speech or suggested israel go back to a pre-nup nine hundred sixty seven borders with mutually agreed land swaps any swaim least found the near idea of going back to nine hundred sixty seven unacceptable the israeli prime minister said it was unrealistic so there was some tension there and given how important the support of the jewish lobby is in the u.s. presidential elections president obama had to do some explaining i know that stating
9:06 am
these principles. i mean issues of territory and security generated some controversy over. i wasn't surprised. i know very well that the easy thing to do or particularly for a president preparing for reelection is to avoid any controversy. so let me reaffirm what nine hundred sixty seven lines with mutually agreed swaps means by definition it means that the parties themselves israelis and palestinians will negotiate a border that is different than the one that existed on june fourth one nine hundred sixty seven. so what president obama basically said at the apec conference was here's the solution that the united states suggests that washington will in no way put any pressure on israel to advance the process it's not the first time
9:07 am
washington talks about the two state solution obama is the first us president to express it explicitly in a speech but they were similar suggestions before but never any action to really push for it as we're going back to nine hundred sixty seven borders as a basis for negotiations the solution is not new all the other members of the quartet of middle east peace negotiators have long been supporting it that's the u.n. the european union and russia president obama was popularity in the arab world is now as low as ever is facing pressure from both the international community and its all time ally israel for whom obama's mentioning of nine hundred sixty seven alone sounded unacceptable so president obama's attempts to please both the international community and its will seem to have resulted in yet another nonstarter in the middle east peace process called rock obama has also want israel that if it doesn't work towards a credible peace deal it could soon find itself totally isolated political analysts john mearsheimer says america's getting tired of indulging israel's everywhere.
9:08 am
there's no question that united states is well beyond patience with netanyahu and with israel more generally behind closed doors the united states is furious with israel because israel is pursuing a policy that is not we american national interest this is disastrous for us and that's why obama wants a two state solution to the problem that obama faces like all american presidents face is that you can't put any pressure on israel because the lobby in this country is so powerful that it will you do great damage to obama's political future in prison or same very clearly is that israel is being isolated around the world and the palestinians are gaining the upper hand in terms of world opinion and was going to happen here is that it's going to be israel and the united states against the rest of the world this is just is just for the united states and disastrous for
9:09 am
