US President Trump Announces Mideast Peace Plan

JERUSALEM: US President Donald Trump, who has announced his long promised “ultimate deal” for Israeli-Palestinian peace, has since coming to office maintained a staunchly pro-Israel stance.

With the new US peace plan rejected in advance by the Palestinians and talks between the two sides stalled since 2014, here is a recap of Trump s position:

In November 2016, just-elected Trump says in an interview with The New York Times that he “would love to be the one who made peace with Israel and the Palestinians”.

“That s the ultimate deal,” he tells The Wall Street Journal.

He indicates his son-in-law Jared Kushner could play a key role in brokering negotiations.
