TEHRAN, Iran - Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on Tuesday called the Middle East plan unveiled by U.S. President Donald Trump as a "nightmare for the region".

"The so-called 'Vision for Peace' is simply the dream project of a bankruptcy-ridden real estate developer. But it is a nightmare for the region and the world," Zarif tweeted, adding "hopefully, a wake-up call for all the Muslims who have been barking up the wrong tree. LetsUniteForPalestinians," he said in a tweet.

The Middle East plan unveiled by Trump on Tuesday proposes the creation of a Palestinian state with a capital in eastern Jerusalem and with double the territory currently under their control. At the same time, under the plan, the U.S. would recognise Israeli sovereignty over its settlements in the West Bank area, with Jerusalem remaining the undivided capital of Israel.

Palestine has rejected the plan, with PA President Mahmoud Abbas remarking that his people's rights are "not for sale." (ANI)
