Jason Greenblatt, the US Special Representative for International Negotiations, said on Thursday that the Trump administration is prepared for Israeli criticism of elements of its coming Middle East peace plan.
Pushing back against widespread perceptions among Palestinians, Arab officials and independent analysts that the peace plan is likely to be decidedly pro-Israel, Greenblatt made clear that both sides can expect parts they will like and dislike.
“We’re going to have to defend the plan to Israelis and Palestinians. We are ready for criticism from all sides, but we believe this is the best path forward for everyone,” he told Reuters.
Greenblatt did not provide an explanation of what might disappoint Israelis about the plan.
The Trump administration hopes Saudi Arabia and other Arab allies will support its peace plan once it is released but does not expect them to “try to push the Palestinian people into a deal that the Palestinians don’t want,” he said.
