Speaking to reporters after a meeting with US mayors, Biden is asked directly whether a two-state solution is impossible with Netanyahu still in office, Times if Israel reported.

“No it is not,” the president replied.

He is then asked: “Are you going to reconsider conditions on Israel aid given what Bibi [Netanyahu] said on a two-state solution? (The Israeli prime minister reiterated and detailed his opposition to Palestinian sovereignty in a press conference on Thursday.)

 “I think we will be able to work something out," he said.

Asked how this could be done, the president said that there might be “types” of two-state solutions that Netanyahu may not be opposed to: “There are a number of types of two-state solutions. There is a number of countries that are members of the UN that are still — don’t have their own militaries. Number of states that have limitations on (inaudible). And so I think there is ways in which this could work.”

Asked what Netanyahu is open to, Biden says: “I will let you know.”
