Op­po­si­tion leader Kyr­i­akos Mit­so­takis stressed the need yes­ter­day for a two-state so­lu­tion dur­ing his visit to Israel for talks with the country’s po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship. He made his re­marks dur­ing a visit to the Pales­tinian ter­ri­to­ries, where he also met with the prime min­is­ter of the Pales­tinian Au­thor­ity, Rami Ham­dal­lah. “I re­it­er­ated our country’s de­sire to play a more sub­stan­tial and con­struc­tive role within the frame­work of an in­ter­na­tional ef­fort,” Mit­so­takis said, adding that the Is­raeli-Pales­tinian con­flict has for decades been at the heart of many is­sues af­flict­ing the wider Mid­dle East. Ear­lier, he met Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu and Pres­i­dent Reu­ven Rivilin. He also vis­ited the Yad Vashem Holo­caust His­tory Mu­seum in Jerusalem, writ­ing in the guest­book that he was “deeply moved by the great­est tragedy in the his­tory of man, we vow to never for­get the hor­ror of this tragic pe­riod.” Dur­ing a meet­ing with Rivlin on Sun­day, Mit­so­takis voiced his sat­is­fac­tion with the po­lit­i­cal rap­proche­ment with Tel Aviv, which he named a “strate­gic part­ner” of Greece.
