Draft U.S. Peace Plan

The Clinton Administration spent the first half of 1998 pressuring Israel to accept its suggestions for a further withdrawal from the West Bank. For several weeks, press reports referred to details of the proposal, particularly calls on Israel to withdraw from 13.1 percent of the territories. This is the first published version of the U.S. proposals, which includes suggestions for a slightly larger withdrawal than had been leaked to the press earlier. Israeli government officials confirmed the basic accuracy of the document, but said this was an early draft and several details had been changed.
