Arab League warns of ignoring two-state solution

Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit warned on Thursday against any peace plan that ignores a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Addressing the UN Security Council, Aboul Gheit also warned against any proposal that creates an alternative economic track that perpetuates Israel's “occupation” of lands the Palestinians want for their independent state.

Aboul Gheit did not specifically mention the US administration in his comments, but his message appeared aimed at the US deal of the century and the upcoming Bahrain economic conference.

He strongly denounced "the attempt to resolve the Palestinian question outside the framework of international law and ignore the established final status issues that are based on the two-state solution.

Aboul Gheit’s comments come ahead of the intended publication of the economic provisions of the US peace plan (the deal of the century) at a workshop in Bahrain to be held on June 25-26.

Little is known about the political components of the peace plan, but president Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, one of the authors of the plan, affirmed in April that the plan would not focus on the two-state solution.

"If people focus on the old traditional talking points we will never make progress," Kushner said at the time, adding, "What we will put out is different.”

The PA already announced it would boycott the Bahrain economic conference, warning it is part of the US deal of the century, which aims to liquidate the Palestinian cause.
