During meetings in Ramallah with Russian President Vladimir Putin and French President Emmanuel Macron, Abu Mazen asked the two to oppose the Trump administration's peace plan and act against any Israeli annexation of Palestinian territories. President Putin said in response that "we understand your concern on this issue."
In the Gaza Strip, too, they threatened to act against the execution of the American peace plan. Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem emphasized that "no deal or plan will be passed that will derogate from our full rights to our lands and holy places, and any attempt to transfer the deal will run into our nation's steadfast standing." He said, "The Palestinian people are the ones who will determine their own fate and their boundaries will not be drawn in the decision of the White House resident."More in Walla! NEWS More in Walla!

Home Vice President Mike Pence invited Netanyahu and Gantz to Washington while visiting the United States Embassy in Jerusalem. Prime Minister Sharon thanked Pence, saying that "I understand that the President has sought opportunities to bring peace and security to Israel, and so I gladly accept the invitation to come to Washington to discuss with him the ideas he has for promoting peace."
In recent days, talks have been held in the US administration regarding the date of publication of the program. Israeli officials who are knowledgeable about the situation say the White House is debating whether to announce the plan during the election, and Netanyahu, supported by United States Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, pressed President Trump to publish the plan as soon as possible. According to the political system, the Trump administration's plan is expected to be most beneficial to Israel and to include American recognition of sovereignty in some territories, but it will nonetheless include some concessions from Israel.
