The Yamina Party will quit the government if Foreign Minister Yair Lapid advances Palestinian statehood when he replaces Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked warned on Sunday. “There will not be a Palestinian state in a government that we [Yamina] are party to,” said Shaked, who is a member of Bennett’s Yamina Party. There is an agreement that this government will not deal with divisive matters such as this one, Shaked told the KAN News radio program.

Last week Lapid told KAN’s television station Channel 11 that a two-state resolution could be advanced when the government rotates in two years’ time, but until then nothing can happen on this matter because Bennett doesn’t support it. The question of two states has suddenly resurfaced in the headlines because Bennett is due to meet with US President Joe Biden later in the week.
