French President Emmanuel Macron confirmed Thursday evening his belief in two sovereigns, in response to a question asked by the newspaper “Le Figaro” about his position on the Trump peace plan and the question of a two-state solution.

Paris – Sputnik. Macron told the newspaper: “I believe in two masters.”

The newspaper described Macron’s statement as “vague” due to the changing quality of the speech. It should be noted that Macron has always stressed the necessity of a two-state solution, but in his statement today to the newspaper, the French President avoided mentioning the issue, instead speaking of two sovereigns.
Macron questioned the success of the American plan, considering that the launching process would require strenuous efforts, adding that “any plan needs two parties to make peace and this cannot be achieved by one party.”

On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump announced his plan to settle the Palestinian-Israeli issue, known as the “Deal of the Century”, in the presence of senior Trump administration officials, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the ambassadors of Oman, the UAE and Bahrain.

The “Deal of the Century” provides for the settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict based on the formula of a two-state solution, with Jerusalem remaining as a “unified” capital for Israel and the allocation of parts of the eastern side of the city to the Palestinian capital, in addition to Israel’s sovereignty over the Jordan Valley and settlements in the West Bank.

The Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, rejected the proposed plan, saying: “We rejected the Trump plan from the start, and we will not accept a state without Jerusalem.”

Abbas stressed that “the conspiracy deal will not pass and will go to the dustbin of history.”
