Lawrenceville, GA – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall released the following statement after introducing House Resolution 138, which reaffirms support for a two-state solution negotiated between the State of Israel and the Palestinian Authority. This resolution urges the Palestinian Authority and regional Arab and Muslim-majority states to engage in negotiations to advance the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and support bilateral relations. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Representative David Schweikert (R-AZ) joined Representatives Hastings (D-FL) and Woodall in introducing the resolution.

“There is no question in my mind that the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian people will only be solved when both sides are able to come together and agree on a peaceful, two-state solution. With the unwavering support of the United States and peace-loving countries in the region and around the world, I hope that we can help provide Israel and the Palestinian Authority the opportunity to seize that two-state solution,” said Congressman Woodall. “I am so proud to join my good friend Mr. Hastings in being an original co-sponsor of this resolution. Our long partnership working together on this issue is testament to how important resolving U.S.-Israel partnership is and how bringing lasting peace to the region transcends partisan lines in Congress.”

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes significant portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties. He currently serves on the Rules Committee, the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and the Budget Committee.
