French leader says Trump’s Middle East plan needs big efforts

PARIS: French President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday the Middle East peace plan recently unveiled by his US counterpart Donald J. Trump requires strenuous efforts to materialize.

The success of Trump’s plan depends on two sides; it will be unlikely if there is only one party, Macron told Le Figaro newspaper.

Asked about the two state solution to the Palestinian Israeli conflict, the French leader said he believes in “two sovereignties.” Announcing the plan on Tuesday, Trump said, “my vision presents a win win situation for both sides.

“Our proposal provides precise technical solutions to make Israelis, Palestinians, and that region safer and much more prosperous,” he added.
