France preparing draft for UN resolution on Palestine

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 | Tag Cloud

PARIS (Worthy News)-- France sees a window of opportunity after Israel’s elections to get the United States on board with a new push for Mideast peace, and is preparing a draft UN Security Council resolution in about 12 days, according to French diplomatic officials, the Times of Israel reported.

The draft would define the pre-1967 frontier as a reference point for border talks but allow room for exchanges of territory, designate Jerusalem as capital of both Israel and a Palestinian state and call for a fair solution for Palestinian refugees, one official told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

While the substance of the French draft may not differ much from past failed efforts to revive Mideast peace talks, France is hoping this time to avoid a US veto at the UN because of increasing American frustration with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.timesofisrael.com/france-preparing-draft-for-un-resoluton-on-palestine/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
