WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Luria issued the following statement on the Israeli-Palestinian peace plan that the President proposed.

“I am encouraged by the administration’s commitment to a bold plan to resolve the Israel-Palestinian conflict. Any meaningful peace agreement must have the full participation and buy-in of both parties, and a final agreement can be made if— and only if— the Palestinians explicitly promise to end their support for terrorism and respect Israel’s right to exist,” Congresswoman Elaine Luria said. “This plan is a step in the direction towards achieving a lasting peace that upholds the sovereignty and dignity of both peoples.”

Congresswoman Elaine Luria represents Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District. She serves on the House Armed Services Committee, where she is the Vice Chair of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, and the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, where she serves as Chair of the Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs Subcommittee.
