But there have been no serious negotiations since gaps widened following the 2009 election of Benjamin Netanyahu as Israel's prime minister. Twenty thousand new work permits will be issued under the plan, raising the total number of PA laborers in pre-1967 Israel to 100,000.
"I will not shut up", said Nikki Haley lashing out at the Palestinian negotiator.
"At this moment, there is zero chance of the two-state solution", said Jimmy Carter, giving his bleakest pronouncement yet on the Israeli-Palestinian deadlock to which he devoted much effort while President of the United States, and even more time since then. Israel considers the entire city, including the eastern sector, to be its undivided capital.
Trump's declaration, which would move the U.S. embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, was met with wide protests in Palestine and many parts of the world.
Those truths, according to Haley, were that the Palestinians must "choose between two paths", one of "absolutist demands, hateful rhetoric, and incitement to violence" and the second that of negotiation and a willingness to make peace. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last week the plan was "fairly well advanced".
The Trump administration is talking up a Middle East peace plan, but has provided few details or explained how unilaterally recognizing Jerusalem as Israeli's despite overwhelming global opposition was supposed to advance a two state solution. However, it is also a disputed territory, contested by both Israel and Palestine, which sees it as a capital of its future state.

Perhaps most striking was President Trump's choice not to mention the Arab Peace Initiative (API), which Israel and the Arab states agree can serve as a basis for a comprehensive approach. Supporters argued he was justified in shooting a Palestinian who they said had meant to kill Israelis.
The Palestinian leader called for "international talks to replace U.S. mediation" before walking out of the UN Security Council session.
"You can choose to denounce the U.S., reject the USA role in peace talks and pursue punitive measures against Israel in worldwide forums like the UN", Haley said. Ambassador Danny Danon fired back, calling Abbas a coward who was "part of the problem" rather than part of the solution.
Haley was referring to the surprise presence of Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and Middle East adviser, who sat with the American delegation in the Security Council chamber.
Nonetheless, Haley explained that the USA was determined to push forward with the peace process.
Furthermore, US President Donald Trump's administration has cut down funding for UNRWA, the United Nations agency that helps many Palestinians, which has dealt the Palestinian Authority another blow.
