Netanyahu: We want peace, but won’t divide Jerusalem

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday said that the Israeli capital of Jerusalem will never again be divided, while also reiterating his commitment to restarting peace talks with the Palestinians who, in any peace agreement, would want to see East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

Speaking at an annual Jerusalem Day ceremony, marking 49 years since the capture of the city’s eastern part including the Old City in the Six Day War and its reunification, Netanyahu said that Jerusalem “has its problems but that we would never go back to a reality of a divided, wounded city.

“We are in Jerusalem by right and not by charity, and we will continue to develop the city for all its residents,” he said at the ceremony on Ammunition Hill.
