United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Thursday that a proposal for the new peace plan between Israel and Palestine was nearly completed.

“The plan won’t be loved by either side. And it won’t be hated by either side. But it’s a template to start talking,” Haley stated.

Currently there is no information on when the plan will come into effect or what it entails. However, it is known that the information was presented on Tuesday at a closed, unannounced meeting of the UN Security Council where, after an hour, US President Donald Trump's senior adviser, Jared Kushner, and his special representative for international negotiations, Jason Greenblatt, looked “friendly and courteous.”

This comes after the controversial decision by Trump and his overwhelmingly supportive Congress of this action to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, after declaring it as the capital of Israel this past December.

Leaders are not staying silent. On Tuesday, Mahmoud Abbas, the President of Palestine, requested that an international conference be held in order to begin a larger peace process, differing from others in the way that the United States would not have mediating power.
