MK Bar’s peace plan: Israel needs to accept a Palestinian state in United Nations, then negotiate

Israel should recognize a Palestinian state first and then negotiate borders, which should be based on the 1949 armistice lines with land swaps to account for settlement blocs, according to a new diplomatic outline MK Hilik Bar (Zionist Union) presented Monday.

Bar presented what he called “a solid foundation for a final status agreement and end of all claims between us and the Palestinians” to some 450 participants in a conference of the Knesset Caucus to Resolve the Arab-Israeli Conflict, which Bar leads. The gathering included MKs mostly from the Zionist Union, a smattering from Meretz and MK Oren Hazan (Likud).
