U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman says reports about his meetings in Washington DC about the soon-to-be revealed Trump administration peace plan for the Middle East “have been wildly inaccurate.”
Friedman said Monday in a tweet posted on the Twitter social networking site, “The U.S. remains committed to sharing its vision for peace with Israel, the Palestinians & other regional and intl (sic) stakeholders at the appropriate time.”
He followed up the tweet with a link to a full statement posted on the site of the U.S. Embassy in Israel.
“Jared Kushner, Jason Greenblatt and I had a very productive meeting last week in the Oval Office with President Trump, Vice President Pence, Secretary Pompeo and Ambassador Bolton in which we discussed the President’s vision for comprehensive peace between Israel and the Palestinians,” Friedman wrote.
“Reports of our meeting have been wildly inaccurate. I would like to reaffirm that the United States remains committed to sharing its vision for peace with Israel, the Palestinians and other regional and international stakeholders at the appropriate time.
“Our timing, our strategy and our messaging is and will be entirely our own. We intend to release the President’s vision when the Administration concludes that we have maximized its potential for acceptance, execution and implementation. Moreover, Mr. Kushner, Mr. Greenblatt and I are of one mind in terms of how best to proceed. Those anonymous “experts” who purport to speak for the Administration on this issue are ill informed and mistaken.”
