u TRANSCRIPT

 

BBC news with Chris Barrel.

President Trump has presented his Middle East peace plan, warning it may be the last chance Palestinians have to gain true independence. Under his proposals, Jerusalem would remain the undivided capital of Israel. The plan would offer the Palestinians contiguous territory for their state if they made certain demands. Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said his country had to have sovereignty over the Jordan Valley. The Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has rejected president Trump's proposal, calling it a conspiracy which will not pass. In the televised address from Ramallah in the Israeli occupied West Bank, Mr. Abbas said the rights of Palestinians are not for sale.

The Chinese president Xi Jingping has said China is struggling against the demon virus but he is confident the country will win the battle. Mr. Xi said he was directing efforts to stop the spread of the new illness.

The European Commission is to help repatriate European citizen currently in Wuhan, the Chinese city at the center of the coronavirus outbreak.

Syrian government forces are assaulting the rebel stronghold of Maaret al-Numan. It's the second biggest town in the mainly rebel-held province of Idlib.

United Sates says it's disappointed Britain’s decision to give the Chinese telecoms company Huawei a limited role in the development of its 5G mobile network. The British government said Huawei will be excluded from military bases and critical infrastructure.

The U.S military in Afghanistan has recovered two set of human remains from the site where an air force plane crashed. Taliban militants said all those on board had been killed.

And Greece's governing New Democracy party has said it's expelling one of the nation's sporting heroes from its group of the European parliament. Theodoros Zagorakis led the Greek's side to victory in Euro 2004 Football championships. His expulsion follows a threat to become an independent.

And that's the latest BBC news.
