Vastavam web: The United States ambassador to the United Nations has said that a proposal for a long awaited peace plan between Israelis and Palestinians is near completion. “I think they’re finishing it up,” Nikki Haley yesterday said, when asked about formulations of a Middle East peace proposal during an appearance at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics.”They’re still going back and forth,” Haley said, without offering specifics of when a proposal might be unveiled.
“The plan won’t be loved by either side. And it won’t be hated by either side. But it’s a template to start talking,” she said.The revelations came after questioning by the academic institute’s chief David Axelrod a former senior advisor to Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama about the US’s controversial decision to declare Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.She said multiple presidents had struggled with a “fear doctrine that the sky was going to fall” if such a declaration was made.”The sky is still up there,” she said. “And now what we have is a time where the negotiations can start between Israelis and Palestinians.”
