Trump’s Middle East peace plan a ‘nightmare for the region’ – Iranian FM Zarif

U.S. President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan divided opinion online after it was unveiled yesterday.

German foreign minister Heiko Maas said that his office would “carefully examine” Trump’s plan, adding that any proposal that could “inject new momentum into the Middle East Peace Process” would be well received.

British foreign secretary Dominic Raab said in a statement that the proposal was “clearly serious”. Raab went on to say that peace between Israel and Palestine could “unlock the potential” of the Middle East region.

In the meantime, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called U.S. President Donald Trump’s Mideast peace plan a “conspiracy” and told him and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that his people’s rights were “not for sale”.

Abbas’s comments came after Trump proposed the creation of a Palestinian state with a capital in eastern Jerusalem, in an effort to achieve a peace breakthrough between the Palestinians and Israel.
