US-called Manama conference for the prosperity of Palestine and its people didn't offer that much inducements, however, it has been considered the first step of the US President's peace plan in the Middle East, pointed out an American newspaper.
New York Times Newspaper reported that in spite of the congratulations received by the US senior advisor Jared Kushner, the American Minister of Finance and their guests, the Palestinian Authority boycotted the held conference, saying it doesn't trust America.
The Bahrain workshop has focused on investing at least $ 50 billion in the Palestinian territories as clarified by Kushner. "Palestinians have refused to propose promising economic incentives before presenting a comprehensive political plan." He added.
However, the economic plan proposed by Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor was not clear and did ignore mentioning the Israeli military occupation of the occupied West Bank and the besieged Gaza Strip. According to the newspaper.
