France to study Trump's Mideast peace plan closely
France said it welcomed U.S. President Donald Trump’s latest efforts to strike a peace deal between Israel and Palestine, and added that Paris would have to study the proposals closely.
"France welcomes President Trump’s efforts and will study closely the peace program he has presented," Reuters cited the statement as saying.
The French foreign ministry also reiterated France’s desire for a two-state solution on Israel and Palestine.
Yesterday, Trump proposed creating a Palestinian state as part of a Middle East peace plan, drawing Palestinian condemnation for imposing strict conditions and agreeing to let Israel maintain control of long-contested West Bank settlements.
