The Arab League (ARAB) supported The Palestinian position and rejected U.S. President Donald Trump’s plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, also known as the “deal of the century.” This was announced to journalists after an emergency meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the Arab countries, TASS reports.
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki said the ministers “encouraged the international community not to deal with this unfair plan.” “We will seek support from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the African Union and the Non-Aligned Movement,” he added. “the deal of the century” is rejected.” In the text of the final communique, the plan is called “American-Israeli.”
On January 28, Trump, along with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, announced key provisions of the “deal of the century.” The United States has proposed to inextricably link the territory of Palestine, consisting of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, as the capital of the Arab state to recognize part of East Jerusalem (according to Netanyahu, a suburb of Abu Dis). At the same time, Trump called Jerusalem the “indivisible capital” of Israel and announced his intention to recognize Jewish settlements as Israeli territory. As a condition of the peace process, Trump demanded that the Palestinian authorities demilitarize Gaza, abandon the methods of armed struggle and support Hamas. The U.S. is proposing to spend $50 billion in investment, including job creation for Palestinians and compensation for lost housing.
