Draft Palestinian peace plan submitted to UN Security Council
December 18 , 2014
A draft resolution putting forward a Palestinian timetable for securing a peace deal with Israel was submitted to the United Nations Security Council.
The resolution, which was presented by Jordan, has called for a deal in one year and the withdrawal of Israel from occupied territories by 2017-end.
Jordan has, however, indicated that it won’t seek a quick vote, leaving the room open for more talks.
The US has previously used its veto against resolutions it believes are hostile to Israel.
