The US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she intends to work with Israel and the Palestinian Authority to secure both long-term security for Israel and the creation of an "independent and viable" Palestinian state.

AFP - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Tuesday for "an independent and viable" Palestinian state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip as the goal of a negotiated settlement with Israel.
   
"We are looking to work with all parties to try to help them make progress toward a negotiated agreement that would end the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians," Clinton said as she stood next to Middle East envoy George Mitchell who returned from his first trip.
   
She vowed to work with all the parties to "create an independent and viable (Palestinian) state in both the West Bank and Gaza, and provide Israel with the peace and security that it has sought."
