US envoy to the Middle East faces resistance at UN Security Council



Middle East

The US Middle East envoy told the the UN Security Council that a peace plan between Israel and Palestine cant’ rely on inconclusive laws and unclear resolutions.

Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt have spent two years developing a plan to re-energize talks between the two Middle Eastern countries over the Gaza Stri and East Jerusalem territories.

Greenblatt said that a peace plan is not achievable with a one-state solution or ‘by fiat of international law or by these heavily wordsmithed, unclear resolutions’.

This statement faced resistance by members of the UN Security Council including, Russia, UK, Germany, Indonesia and France.

The latter said that they would support any pace plan “as long as this aligns with the approach that we have set out together”.

Kushner and Greeblatt will travel along with Brian Hook, US/Iran envoy, to the Middle East to propose a $50 billion economic plan for the area and Greenblatt has urged the Security Council to bring the parties together to a negotiation table but Russian ambassador Vassily Nebenzia suggested a Security Council’s visit in the region. The proposal was objected by the US.
