As the White House representative noted, Biden supports the existence of independent Palestinian and Israeli states and has maintained this view "throughout his career."

However, according to the US President, the Palestinian state should be established through direct negotiations between the parties involved in the Arab-Israeli conflict, not through unilateral recognition.

Recently, Biden also stated that the creation of two separate states is "the only solution where two people live in peace, security, and dignity."
