This year, US President Donald Trump released his plan to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu without the presence of Palestinian officials.
On this occasion, Trump referred to Jerusalem as “Israel’s undivided capital.”
What he said was considered a peace plan unilaterally canceling previous UN resolutions on the Palestinian issue. (T/R7/RE1)
