(JERUSALEM) -- Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has reportedly drawn up a map with provisional borders for a future Palestinian state. His map leaves all the Jewish settlements in place and transfers almost no additional land to the Palestinians. More land would be transferred through negotiations.
Lieberman reportedly believes that endorsing his map will preempt international recognition of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders.
His push for an interim peace plan contradicts the Israeli government's official commitment to a permanent agreement, and it is drawing criticism from Palestinians. Calling the plan a joke, Palestinian peace negotiator Saeb Erekat said the map ignores many of his people's demands.
