Pompeo Says US Mideast Plan to Discard Old 'Parameters'

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested Wednesday that an upcoming US peace plan would break with longstanding understandings on issues such as Jerusalem and Israeli settlements, saying the old approach had failed. President Donald Trump's administration is expected to present an outline of a Middle East peace plan shortly after Israel's April 9 election, although the Palestinian Authority has rejected US mediation over Trump's landmark recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
