The United States hopes that Palestinians will make a decision to support the plan on Middle Eastern settlement proposed by US President Donald Trump, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said on Tuesday, APA reports citing TASS.

"In the end, the Palestinian people are going to have to make a decision about whether they want to continue to difficult challenges they face today <...> or if they want to turn the page and deliver an outcome for themselves and for their children and their grandchildren that's better, a brighter future," Pompeo said.

"The opportunity is now at the table. They don't have to do it today or tomorrow, but I am confident that as they stare at this, as the Palestinian people stare at what the opportunity is <...> I am convinced that the Palestinian people will, over the coming weeks and months — and we've given them four years — will see that this is a better option for them. I'm hopeful that they will," he added.
