US President Donald Trump's so-called ‘peace’ plan for Palestine dead on arrival

US President Donald Trump’s so-called “peace plan” has been dismissed by Palestinian authorities before its unveiling at the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

US President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner said Wednesday that the plan would be unveiled until June.

“We will all have to look for reasonable compromises that will make peace achievable,” Kushner said.Speaking in the Israeli-occupied West Bank city of Ramallah Tuesday, Palestinian Authority Prime Minster Mohammad Shtayyeh lashed out at Trump’s initiative allegedly to bring about peace between Israelis and Palestinians, asserting that it is “born dead.”

Trump’s “deal of the century” comes in the backdrop of his recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of the Israeli regime.

Shtayyeh noted that negotiations with the US are useless in the wake f the country’s relocation of its embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city, which Palestinians consider the capital city of their future state.Speaking in the Israeli-occupied West Bank city of Ramallah Tuesday, Palestinian Authority Prime Minster Mohammad Shtayyeh lashed out at Trump’s initiative allegedly to bring about peace between Israelis and Palestinians, asserting that it is “born dead.”

Palestinians want the West Bank as part of a future independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.

The last round of Israeli-Palestinian talks collapsed in 2014. Among the major sticking points in those negotiations was Israel’s continued settlement expansion on Palestinian territories.

Trump backtracked on Washington’s support for a “two-state solution” in 2017, saying he would support any solution favored by both sides.
