American political journal Mother Jones has released more secretly filmed footage of Mitt Romney at a private fundraiser held on May 17. During the conversation the Republican presidential candidate was asked about his views on resolving the conflict in the Middle East.
Romney said he did not see any real possibility for peace in area, as Palestinians "have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace."
"I look at the Palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway, for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel, and these thorny issues, and I say there's just no way
"So what you do is, you say, you move things along the best way you can. You hope for some degree of stability, but you recognize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem…and we kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately, somehow, something will happen and resolve it."
US presidential candidate Mitt Romney has justified comments he made about Obama supporters in a secretly-filmed video at a fundraising event.
