Moderator Richard Bott has written a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urging Canada to maintain a principled policy position in accordance with international law, and to strongly oppose the United States’ Middle East “peace plan.” The Moderator also asked that Prime Minister Trudeau urge other world leaders to denounce the idea that the U.S. plan could offer a framework for negotiating peace, lamenting that “it is far from being a ‘win-win’ in advancing peace for Israelis and Palestinians.” “They tell us that this plan offers nothing to Palestinians but a perpetual state of occupation,” says Bott.
