Abbas: Trump offered us peace plan based on confederation with Jordan

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday said at a meeting with left-wing group Peace Now and members of the Knesset that Trump‘s negotiation team had offered him a peace deal based on a confederation with Jordan.

Abbas commented that he would agree to such a plan under the condition that Israel were part of the confederation.

"I want a three-party confederation with Jordan and Israel and I am asking Israel to accept such a proposal," Abbas was quoted as saying.

According to him, it was Israel that refused to negotiate on important issues and even to meet him in the past.

"I met Trump four times," Abbas emphasized, arguing that he was in favor of a demilitarized state of Palestine.

"I have a problem with Netanyahu, not with the Likud," he clarified.
