So, it became known that Mohammed bin Salman was offering $ 10 billion to the President of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas, for supporting the aforementioned Trump plan. This is part of the ambitious “deal of the century”, although everything looks clearly small. It is reported by Press TV (English-speaking international news a round-the-clock television channel funded by the Iranian government and based in Tehran).
It is clarified that Mahmoud Abbas refused such a “profitable” offer during his visit to Saudi Arabia in December 2017. At the meeting, Mohammed bin Salman informed Abbas about the details of Trump's plan, but the Palestinian was adamant. Moreover, he told the heir to the throne that consent to the “deal of the century” would mark the end of his political career, but he will not do that.
In turn, the prince pressured that Palestine needed money. Its annual budget is $ 1 billion, which must be taken elsewhere. Therefore, the prince offered to pay $ 10 billion over 10 years ($ 1 billion per year) for agreeing to a "deal of the century."
In addition, Mohammed bin Salman offered assistance in matters related to the West Bank and investment in various projects. However, Abbas did not succumb to temptations and rejected Trump's plan, which was about to line up for the Nobel Peace Prize.
It should be recalled that in mid-April 2019, the adviser and son-in-law of the President of the United States (rich, well-born and influential) Jared Kushner informed the international community that Trump's plan would be made public in June 2019. So it won't be long to wait for the “fateful” moment. At the same time, Kushner, without going into details, denied information that Trump's plan concerns only economic questions. Before that, he, a few months earlier, said that Trump's plan involves the abolition of borders in their current form and the free movement of people and goods, as well as the unification of all Palestinian territories under one rule.
In turn, the Israeli media claim that the Trump plan involves the creation of a Palestinian state on 90% of the West Bank and the partition of the city of Jerusalem. However, this is hardly believed. At the same time, the US State Department does not comment on this information at all. After all, Palestine officially refused Washington's mediation in December 2017, when Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
