U.S. Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt took to Twitter Wednesday, to acknowledge that "no one will be fully pleased" with the U.S.' much-anticipated Arab-Israeli peace plan.
The joint statement from U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, senior White House advisor Jared Kushner and Greenblatt was issued in Hebrew, English and Arabic, and said, "No one will be fully pleased with our proposal, but that's the way it must be if real peace is to be achieved. Peace can only succeed if it is based on realities."
Earlier this month, a White House source and senior Arab officials said the Trump administration was postponing the rollout of its so-called "deal of the century" to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by several months.
U.S. officials said the administration was staffing up the Middle East policy team at the White House in anticipation of the unveiling of the plan.
The statement from Greenblatt, however, seems to imply the peace plan could be rolled out sooner rather than later.
Although U.S. officials have long promised the most comprehensive package ever put forward to resolve the conflict, not even a small detail of the emerging plan has been offered by Kushner, Greenblatt or any other official.
White House officials said the plan will focus on pragmatic details, rather than top-line concepts, in a way that will help win public support.
Meanwhile, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas lashed out at the United States over its proposals to rehabilitate Gaza on Wednesday.
"I swear to God, they [U.S. officials] are liars," he said.
Abbas added that he believes the U.S. is trying to promote aid projects for Gaza to serve its own interests.
The Palestinians rejected the U.S. as peace broker following U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December and his moving the embassy there in May.
Arab officials confirmed to Israel Hayom in June that the regional peace plan being devised by the United States will focus on rehabilitating the Gaza Strip prior to dealing with the other cardinal issues involved in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
Trump, who has billed the plan as the "deal of the century," is determined to push it through with the help of the moderate Arab state – Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates – even if it means going over Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' head, the officials said.
