Former US president Jimmy Carter, on CNN, said the countryâ€™s current President Donald Trumpâ€™s initiative for resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict serves instead to compromise any prospect of â€śpeaceâ€ť and violates international law, Palestine News Network reported.
â€śThe new US plan undercuts prospects for a just peace between Israelis and Palestinians. If implemented, the plan will doom the only viable solution to this long-running conflict, the two-state solution,â€ť he said.
Carter stated that the plan violated the United Nationsâ€™ repeated calls for a â€śtwo-state solutionâ€ť based on the 1967 borders, the year Israel occupied the Palestinian territories in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Carter called on UN member states â€śto adhere to UN Security Council resolutions and to reject any unilateral Israeli implementation of the proposal by grabbing more Palestinian land.â€ť
