White House races to save Middle East peace process before Trump takes office
John Kerry to underline outgoing president’s support of two-state solution with speech setting out US vision of #Israel-Palestine agreement
John Kerry is due to lay out a US framework for an Palestinian-Israeli agreement as the #Obama administration and its international allies scramble to protect what is left of the peace process before #Donald Trump takes office.
The US secretary of state will outline the proposals on Wednesday, at a time when US-Israeli relations have reached their lowest point in decades. The government of the Israeli prime minister, #Benjamin Netanyahu, has accused Washington of conspiring against it when a UN security council vote on Friday demanded an end to settlement building in the West Bank.
