Home Articles World I have never stated that Israel is an apartheid state: John Kerry

1 (4)

US Secretary of State John Kerry has vehemently denied he had ever called Israel “an apartheid state,” amid a row over comments reportedly made during a private meeting. “I do not believe, not have I ever stated, publicly or privately that Israel is an apartheid state or that it intends to become one,” the top US diplomat said in a strong statement after calls for him to resign or at least apologise for the alleged comments.
“Anyone who knows anything about me knows that without a shred of doubt.” But Kerry, who has seen his dogged efforts to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians collapse, did suggest that he had used a poor choice of words during his speech Friday to international experts of the Trilateral Commission.
“I have been around long enough to also know the power of words to create a misimpression, even when unintentional, and if I could rewind the tape, I would have chosen a different word to describe my firm belief that the only way in the long term to have a Jewish state and two nations and two peoples living side by side in peace and security is through a two-state solution.”
