UK PM Johnson backs Trump peace plan in call with Netanyahu

Published: Updated:

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson reiterated his support for a US Middle East peace plan and a two-state solution in a call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Johnson’s spokesman said on Thursday.

Last month, US President Donald Trump proposed the creation of a Palestinian state with a capital in East Jerusalem, dependent on Palestinians taking steps to become self-governing, in an attempt to achieve a peace breakthrough.

Palestinian leaders have rejected the plan.
