In the eighteen months following the outbreak of the second Palestinian uprising, an international consensus advocates a two state solution. US envoys Tenet and Mitchell, President Bush, the UN, the EU, the Russians, Arab states, Israel, and an important segment of the Palestinian community agree that a two-state solution could be a feasible resolution to the conflict, with Palestinians and Israelis holding specific reservations about such a solution’s implementation. This UN resolution is based upon UN Security Council resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973), which stress sovereignty and territorial integrity of states as well as direct negotiations between the parties. For more than a decade that followed, discussions are held about the details involved in establishing a two-state solution. (source)
