# 1: The United States and the international community have long held that only direct negotiations between the two sides can provide a path to a just and permanent resolution.
# 2: The U.S. peace plan reverses decades of policy by proposing a solution through coercion. The plan disenfranchises Palestinians, exacerbates their humanitarian needs, entrenches violations of their rights, denies their hopes for genuine statehood and self-determination.
# 3: A principled peace plan would ensure the viability of a contiguous Palestinian state and would afford a durable solution for millions of Palestine refugees.
# 4: U.S. recognition of Israel’s attempts to annex territory would constitute a breach of international law. The law obligates states not to recognise, aid or assist Israel’s international wrongful acts.
# 5: The international community must act decisively to safeguard the territorial integrity of occupied Palestinian land and the rights of the Palestinians. Only then will we move toward a durable peace for both peoples that is grounded in international law.
