Draft UNSC Resolution Condemns Israeli Annexation In Middle-East Peace Plan

Published

on

A draft UNSC resolution denounced an Israeli plan to annex its settlements in the West Bank in a rebuke of President Donald Trump’s pro-Israel Middle-East peace proposal.

‘Deal of Century’ Between US-Israel-Palestine To Give Israel Everything It Wants – Analysts

The draft text, circulated to council members by Tunisia and Indonesia, would seemingly face a U.S. veto, but nonetheless offered some members’ dim view of the peace plan that Trump rolled out last week with great fanfare.

Diplomats said negotiations on the text would likely begin later this week. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is expected to speak to the council next week about the plan, possibly coinciding with a vote on the draft resolution. The resolution “stresses the illegality of the annexation of any part” of occupied Palestinian territories and “condemns recent statements calling for annexation by Israel” of these territories, according to the draft seen by Reuters.

Trump’s plan, the product of three years effort by senior adviser Jared Kushner, would recognize Israel’s authority over the settlements and would require the Palestinians to meet a highly difficult series of conditions to be allowed to have a state, with its capital in a West Bank village east of Jerusalem. Kushner is due to brief Security Council ambassadors on the plan on Thursday.

Why Palestine Rejected The Trump Peace Plan To Resolve Israel-Palestine Conflict?

While the Palestinians have rejected the plan, a number of Arab governments have said it represents a starting point for a renewal of long-stalled negotiations. The resolution stresses the need for an acceleration of international and regional efforts to launch “credible negotiations on all final status issues in the Middle East peace process without exception.”

A U.S. veto at the council level would allow the Palestinians to take the draft text to the 193-member U.N. General Assembly, where a vote would publicly show how Trump’s peace plan has been received internationally.
