Trump peace plan delayed as Jordan balks at replacing PLO
The outcome of the Jordanian king's visit to the White House this week is crucial to the advancement of Trump's plan.
by David Singer

President Trump’s long-awaited plan on ending the Arab-Israeli conflict will be further delayed following a flurry of diplomatic activity over the past week.
Critical to the success of Trump’s plan will involve replacing the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) as Israel’s negotiating partner, as it has been over the last 25 years. The PLO, administravely known as the Palestinian Authority (PA) has cut its own throat by making it very clear it will have nothing to do with anything Trump proposes. Trump’s Senior Advisor Jared Kushner and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt met in New York City on 15 June with United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres. The White House reported that they had a productive discussion about the efforts of the United States to promote peace in the Middle East and to meet humanitarian needs in Gaza. This UN visit was followed by Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flying to Amman for a public meeting with Jordan’s King Abdullah on June 18 – their first since 2014. Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, General Intelligence Department Director Maj. Gen. Adnan Jundi, Adviser to His Majesty and Director of the Office of His Majesty Manar Dabbas and Adviser to His Majesty for Economic Affairs Mohamad Al Ississ attended the meeting.

Communiques separately issued by Netanyahu and Abdullah following their meeting differ significantly."-more
