US Middle East peace plan ‘could prove a positive step forwards,’ UK says

Britain gives a cautious welcome to US President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan, after he unveiled his proposal with visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington.

Downing Street says Prime Minister Boris Johnson spoke to Trump earlier. “The leaders discussed the United States’ proposal for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, which could prove a positive step forwards,” a spokesman says.
