Israeli President Reuven Rivlin expressed hope that Donald Trump's Middle East 'peace plan' could reopen negotiations and set «a shared vision of a new future» both for Israel and Palestine.
Speaking at Holocaust Commemoration session at Bundestag on Wednesday, Rivlin said: «It is a plan which makes great concessions that are painful and difficult for both sides. But we must not give up because... Еще those who give up miss the opportunity.»
He continued: «Despite the difficulties we face, we must talk about solutions that would be good for our security and our stability, and also will allow economic growth for both sides. I am optimistic and I hope this plan will be implemented.»
US President Donald Trump detailed his 'deal of the century', a set of proposals to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in a joint statement with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington DC on Tuesday.
Under the plan put forth, «Jerusalem will remain Israel's undivided capital».
Palestine cut ties with the US after Washington recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital more than two years ago.
