“We believe we have a plan that is fair, realistic and implementable that will enable people to live better lives," a Trump administration official said on Sunday.
U.S. President Donald Trump's "Deal of the Century" to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict will be absent of a Palestinian state, the Washington Post reported on Sunday.
The Washington Post article said Trump's deal promises to improve the lives of Palestinians, but will not recognize a fully sovereign Palestinian state.
This peace deal is expected to be rolled out some time in late Spring or early Summer, which is two years after Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner announced that they had established a plan to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The Washington Post article contends that the Trump peace deal will focus primarily on Israel's security interests and less on Arab territorial concerns.
“We believe we have a plan that is fair, realistic and implementable that will enable people to live better lives,” a senior White House official said on Friday, as quoted by Israel's Arutz Sheva. “We looked at past efforts and solicited ideas from both sides and partners in the region with the recognition that what has been tried in the past has not worked. Thus, we have taken an unconventional approach founded on not hiding from reality, but instead speaking truth.”
The reason for the delay in releasing this peace plan is due to Trump's desire to wait for Israeli Prime Benjamin Netanyahu to form a new coalition in his govenrment, the Washington Post added.
