Bandt announced the plan after Australia’s Assistant Foreign Minister, Tim Watts, a member of the Australian Labor Party, said “anyone who is serious about peace knows that requires a two-state solution, a Palestinian state alongside the state of Israel” in comments reported by the Guardian Australia.
