Arab pressure on Abbas to accept Trump’s deal
25 June, 2018, 07:44
Trump's son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner and US Middle East peace envoy Jason Greenblatt are in Israel as part of a regional push for the American leader's new peace plan.
He'll meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank city of Ramallah at a time of widening rifts between the two sides.
Kushner added that the Middle East peace plan is nearly completed, but did not elaborate on its details, the AP reported.
Prince William arrived in Jordan on Sunday night for the first stop of a politically delicate, five-day Middle East tour that will make him the first British royal to pay an official visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories.
They claimed the fact that Kushner had to address the Palestinian public through a newspaper was an indication the United States administration had failed to win Arab support for the plan. Asked if the new US peace plan would accommodate that view, he reiterated that it was up to the Israeli and Palestinian "leadership and people" to determine the shape of a final agreement.
Abbas has severed communications with the Trump administration since December, when the US formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and announced plans to move its embassy there. He made no mention of a Palestinian state arising alongside Israel, though he acknowledged that Arab partners support that goal.
Hussein, 23, a Sandhurst-trained second lieutenant in the Jordanian army, shares a passion for football and motorbikes with William.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict typically looms large, even during largely ceremonious visits, and William will have to manoeuvr carefully to avoid missteps.
East Jerusalem's Old City - home to a number of holy sites revered by Muslims, Christian, and Jews alike - was annexed by Israel in 1967 in a move never recognized by the worldwide community.
Ahead of William's arrival, the official schedule's reference to east Jerusalem as "in the Occupied Palestinian Territories" sparked particular anger among some right-wing Israeli politicians. The status of East Jerusalem, which Palestinians want as the capital of a sovereign Palestinian state, has been at the center of the decades-long struggle for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
William's wife, the former Kate Middleton, spent two years in Jordan as a toddler when her father moved the family there during a work assignment.
He will visit the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem and pay tribute at the tomb of his great-grandmother Princess Alice of Greece, who was honoured by Israel for sheltering Jews during World War II.
They will visit Fablab in Amman, an initiative set up under the Crown Prince Foundation that gives young people the training and technology they need to pursue business projects.
In Jerusalem, he will stay at the King David hotel, which was Britain's administrative headquarters during its rule of Palestine prior to Israeli statehood in 1948. On Sunday evening, William is delivering a speech during a reception hosted by the British Embassy in Amman.
During the reception, which marked the Queen's birthday, William spoke about the duchess: "My wife Catherine is very sorry she can not be here with me so soon after the birth of our son Louis, but her family remembers very fondly the nearly three years she spent here as a child when her father worked for British Airways in Amman".
