Nikki Haley: Israel, Palestine won’t ‘love’ Trump’s peace plan


By Middle East Affairs

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Thursday that President Donald Trump’s peace plan for the Middle East is in its final stages of being written.

She also said neither Israel nor Palestine will “love” it.

In a speech at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, she said Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, as well as special envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict Jason Greenblatt were “still going back and forth” with ideas for the plan.

“I think they’re finishing it up,” she said.

She added it’s for them to decided.

“If they decide on two states, the United States will support two states. If they decide on certain boundaries, they United States is going to support those boundaries.

She said the plan “won’t be loved and won’t be hated” by either side.

Haley said she has hope and faith.

“The Palestinians deserve better and the Israelis deserve better. Right now they’re in conflict. It’s not a good situation. If the leaders would put aside their pride and their ego, and think about their people, and improving the quality of life for their people, this peace process will do that.”
