The Trump administration’s proposed Israeli-Palestinian peace plan has been completed, and the US president has been briefed on its contents, senior administration officials tell Fox News.
“The plan is done… [the president] is happy with the parameters of the deal,” a senior White House official is quoted as saying.
According to the report, the document is 175 to 200 pages long, and fewer than five people have access to it.
The official added that the White House is unlikely to publish the draft before Israel’s elections in April.
“We are not going to do anything that threatens Israel’s security,” a senior administration official said.
The Palestinian Authority foreign minister is asking Arab countries to boycott or downgrade their representation at the upcoming US-sponsored Mideast summit in Poland.
Riad Malki says that, at the very least, Arab nations should have low-profile delegations, below the ministerial level, at the conference. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are sending foreign ministers. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be at the summit.
Malki says the Palestinians “view the Warsaw conference as a plot against the Palestinian cause.”
He made the remarks on the Voice of Palestine as Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was to visit Saudi Arabia.
Most Arab nations have refrained from establishing relations with Israel without significant progress being made toward peace with the Palestinians. But many Gulf states share with Israel concerns over Iran’s growing influence.
