January 30, 2020: Palestinian Prime Minister Defending Position on Peace Plan

Attached is the link to Palestinian Prime Minister Dr. Mohammad Shtayyeh's interview with the BBC, where he discusses his administration's position on the recently released peace plan (3:05 min video).

The latest Israeli/Palestinian peace plan released by the White House has received mixed reviews. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears to be in favour of the plan, while Palestinian President Mahmood Abbas has come out against. Many Gulf Arab states commend the effort made by President Trump's administration, while stopping short of endorsing the plan, itself.

Although the plan includes potentially interesting investment opportunities, it is challenging to envisage stakeholder buy-in by all parties, when not all of the stakeholders were included in negotiating its details.

Jerusalem Post published an article by Ron Kampeas, discussing who gains and loses in the deal, which you can read here.

Haaretz published an article by Nir Hasson, who discusses some of the contradictions in the plan and then concludes by postulating a very noble method of measuring the success of this, or any other peace plan, which you can read here.

 

Can this plan be used as a basis for further negotiations and build on its positive elements to iron out pain points by an administration that prides itself on its negotiating skills and ability to successfully achieve complex deals, or will it be remembered as one more failed Middle East peace initiative?
