QUEBEC (CTV) — U.S. President Barack Obama should “stay quiet” rather than try to impose a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, former Mexican President Vicente Fox said Sunday in Quebec City.
Fox lashed out at the Obama government’s foreign policy upon his arrival in Quebec City for the 29th annual meeting of the InterAction Council.
The forum brings together former heads of state, which this year included former U.S. president Bill Clinton and former prime minister Jean Chretien.
The retired leaders will discuss the turmoil in the Arab world and its impact on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during the forum, which runs from Sunday until Tuesday.
Fox, Mexico’s president between 2000 and 2006, criticized Obama’s recent comments favouring the creation of a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders.
“I think Obama should stay quiet and let the people of both nations decide their future,” Fox told reporters shortly before the ceremonial opening of the InterAction Council.

Mexico was better under his leadership. His disrespect of U.S. borders is unfortunate, perhaps he should look into this specific issue of borders some more. It is nice to see him doing the right thing by Israel
