ARAB LEAGUE CHIEF SAYS PALESTINIANS TO PRESENT PEACE PLAN

The Palestinian leadership will present “a new plan” to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the upcoming Arab League Summit in Jordan, Arab League Secretary-General Ahmad Abul Ghaith told a pan-Arab, London-based publication.

“There is a desire on the Palestinian side to reformulate some ideas… They [the Palestinians] promised to put forward a new plan pertaining to the Palestinian issue in general,” Abul Ghaith told Al-Sharq al-Awsat in an interview published on Wednesday, without elaborating.

The Arab League Summit, which Arab officials have said will be consequential for the Palestinian issue, is slated to take place on March 29 near the Dead Sea in Jordan.

Ahmad Majdalani, a confidante of Abbas, however, denied the report, saying that it “is not correct.”

“As we have in the past, we support the Arab Peace Initiative as a resolution to the conflict. We have no new plan,” Majdalani told The Jerusalem Post in a telephone interview.

“The idea of a new plan has not been discussed.”
