The plan of U.S. President Donald trump on the middle East, known as the “deal of the century”, it may complicate a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. This at a press conference in Moscow said the Ambassador of Palestine in Russia, Abdelhafiz Nofal, reports RIA Novosti.
He noted that now the situation with the conflict settlement steps back, although earlier positive trends were observed. “The recent steps by the American leadership, in particular, the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, of course, complicate the situation”, — said the Ambassador.
According to Novalia, the situation will deteriorate after the announcement of the “deal of the century”.
7 may was made public the details of the plan of Donald trump. It is expected that Israel, the Palestine liberation Organization and Hamas will sign an agreement on creating a Palestinian state, “New Palestine”. It will include the West Bank of the Jordan river and the Gaza strip, except land occupied by Jewish settlements. A block of Jewish settlements, which will connect isolated settlements, will belong to Israel.
In addition, it was reported that Jerusalem will receive the status of the joint capital of the “New Palestine” and Israel. Arab residents will become citizens of a Palestinian state. Palestine will get the rent from the Egyptian territory near the Gaza strip.
In April, the Advisor and son-in-law of U.S. President Jared Kushner stated that “the deal of the century” will be presented in June.
Plan of middle East settlement called “deal of the century” prepared from the beginning of the presidential term of Donald trump, but the official details of the project were not disclosed.
