In a report published on Monday, The New York Time said the plan prepared by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for settlement in Middle East “recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.’
According to the Newspaper, the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman presented a plan that would be more tilted toward the Israelis than any ever embraced by the American government, one that presumably no Palestinian leader could ever accept.
The plan including Saudi recognition of Jewish settlements in the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the Newspaper added.
It said that Bin Salman’s plan is based on a preference for “Israeli interests, and it is a revolution in relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia.”
Meanwhile, the report added that Trump’s administration sees Bin Salman as a central player in the Middle East and supports his position in order to reach an end to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Several of the officials said the prince had offered to sweeten the agreement with vastly increased financial support to the Palestinians, and even dangled the possibility of a direct payment to Abbas.
