Arab League rejects Trump’s Middle East peace plan

The Arab League on Saturday rejected US President Donald Trump’s controversial Middle East plan, calling it “unfair” to Palestinians.

The pan-Arab bloc said in a statement that it “rejects the US-Israeli ‘deal of the century’ considering that it does not meet the minimum rights and aspirations of Palestinian people.”

Arab leaders also vowed “not to… cooperate with the US administration to implement this plan.”

According to Channel 13 news the decision was unanimous.

The US plan would grant the Palestinians a state with restricted sovereignty in Gaza and in parts of the West Bank, while allowing Israel to annex all its settlements and keep nearly all of East Jerusalem.

The League warned that Israel must not act on the plan unilaterally — a reference to Israel’s stated intention to move on annexation as soon as possible.

The Palestinian leader said he was willing to present an alternative proposal before the UN Security Council.

Meanwhile, “We’ve informed the Israeli side…that there will be no relations at all with them and the United States, including security ties,” Abbas declared.
