US President Donald Trump intends to unveil his plan for a Middle East settlement before meeting with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington on January 28, AFP reported.
Palestinians who were not invited to meet with Netanyahu at the White House immediately rejected the talks organized by the US, as they reject the peace plan, which has been in development since 2017.
The economic part of the plan was announced last June. It provides $ 50 billion in international investment in Palestine and neighboring Arab states over 10 years.
Palestinians who refuse to talk to the Trump administration since he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel reject the peace plan because it seems to bury the two-state solution, which for decades has been the cornerstone of international diplomacy to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict .
Trump noted that he was pleased that Netanyahu and his main rival in the election, Benny Gantz, would come to the White House in the middle of the election campaign. Israeli elections will be held on March 2.
When asked if he contacted the Palestinians, Trump said they had spoken with them briefly, but would tlks to them after a while.
However, Palestine has already stated its rejection of the White House peace plan.
