RAMALLAH - 20 February 2018: President Mahmoud Abbas will tender a Palestinian peace overture and plan in his address later Tuesday at the United Nations Security Council meeting, said Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al Maliki on Tuesday.

Speaking to Sawt Palestine radio, Maliki said the plan calls for halting the unilateral Israeli measures, including settlement activities, and annulling the decision taken by U.S. President Donald Trump on Jerusalem.

The plan also gears up for an international conference to pave the ground for negotiations while committing to the two-state solution and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, he said.

As for Russia's proposal to hold a Palestinian-Israeli-Russian meeting, Maliki said Russia is still insisting on playing a positive role despite the obstacles, topped by Israel's rejection.
