Report: Trump weighing unveiling of Mideast peace plan

President Donald Trump is considering presenting his Middle East peace plan to Israel and the Palestinian Authority in the near future, a report released Thursday night claims.According to the Channel 10 report, which cited sources in Washington, Trump is weighing whether to present his plan for Israeli-Arab peace, despite the Palestinian Authority’s refusal to participate in negotiations.Trump’s main reason for presenting the plan is to show the international community the parameters of his initiative. “Because the plan has not yet been finalized, we have not yet decided how to present it and what will we do if one of the parties is not prepared to come to the negotiating table. We are not there yet,” said the source.”We are optimistic that all the relevant countries that support a peace agreement are still waiting for our plan, they want to work with us and understand that the United States cannot be replaced as a mediator,” the official added.Relations between the Trump Administration and the Palestinian Authority were suspended following President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel in December of last year.Earlier this week, US Special Envoy to the Middle East Jason Greenblatt said that the United States would not force its plan on either side.
