- Trump Peace Plan Likely Won’t Include Palestinian State — Report
US officials highlight economic benefits of proposal, acknowledge that any initiative that ignores political aspirations is doomed to fail, the Washington Post reports.
US President Donald Trump’s peace plan will include considerable economic incentives for Palestinians, but will likely stop short of full statehood, The Washington Post reported on Sunday.
The initiative expected to be introduced in the coming months will offer Palestinians an improved version of the status quo, highlighting “autonomy” over “sovereignty,” according to the US daily, which relied on interviews with anonymous American officials, in addition to individuals familiar with the under-wraps proposal.
The report followed several interviews by members of Trump’s Middle East team in recent months which also skirted the subject of Palestinian statehood.
