Biden on two-state solution

On Middle East tour Biden says two-state solution can happen despite settlements.

    On a trip to the Middle East, Joe Biden, the US vice-president, has said that there must be no delay in resuming Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

    His comments come despite a row over Israeli plans to build 1,600 new homes on Palestinian land.

    Biden has criticised the timing of the building decision, which prompted the Israeli prime minister to apologise.

    Speaking to Al Jazeera's Abderrahim Foukara, Biden stressed that despite continued Israeli settlement building, he still believes in a two-state solution.
