'Reports of plan to give portion of Egypt's Sinai to Gaza False,' says Trump special envoy Greenblatt
Published in Ahram Online on 19 - 04 - 2019

Jason D. Greenblatt, US President Trump's Assistant and Special Representative for International Negotiations refuted in a tweet on Friday all reports that a portion of Egypt's Sinai would be given to Gaza as part of a peace deal in the Middle East.
"Hearing reports our plan includes the concept that we will give a portion of Sinai (which is Egypt's) to Gaza. False! Please don't believe everything you read. Surprising & sad to see how people who don't know what's in the plan make up & spread fake stories," Greenblatt said.
Greenblatt has visited several countries in the Middle East in the last two years as an envoy of President Trump to push the US president's view for comprehensive peace in the region.
later on Friday, Greenblatt tweeted for direct negotiations between parties to reach a comprehensive deal in the Middle East.
"Another incorrect story. Our vision doesn't provide for “baseball arbitration,” which wouldn't work in this situation. There's no avoiding direct negotiations between parties to reach a comprehensive deal. Anyone who thinks otherwise is mistaken."
Greenblatt linked his last tweet to an opinion piece published on Wednesday in the Jordan Times under the title "Palestine is not for sale and baseball arbitration will not work."
