Former US president Jimmy Carter, on CNN, said the country’s current President Donald Trump’s initiative for resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict serves instead to compromise any prospect of “peace” and violates international law, Palestine News Network reported.
“The 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,” he said.
Carter stated that the plan violated the United Nations’ repeated calls for a “two-state solution” 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 “to adhere to UN Security Council resolutions and to reject any unilateral Israeli implementation of the proposal by grabbing more Palestinian land.”
