US President Barack Obama will almost certainly not pressure Israel to advance a peace process with the Palestinians during his final weeks in office, a new report claims.
AP reported that it had obtained information from “US officials” that Obama had no intention of shaking Israel up with a new peace plan before he steps down.
According to the officials, Obama had been considering over the past year to make a final grand statement – whether in the form of a speech or through support for a UN resolution – urging a renewed peace plan between Israel and the Palestinians.
Apparently, however, the unexpected election of Donald Trump caused Obama to change his mind.
