The United Nations (UN) Security Council is scheduled to hold a meeting on Tuesday on the U.S.-proposed Middle East peace plan, a UN spokesperson said on Monday.

Both UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov will speak at the meeting, Farhan Haq, deputy spokesman for Guterres, told reporters.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is also expected to make a statement at the briefing.

The U.S. plan was immediately rejected by Palestine and the Arab world. Enditem
