Obama Seeks to Pave Way to Mideast Deal After He Leaves Office - NYT

outlines of an agreement, several officials said, perhaps through a
resolution at the United Nations Security Council or in a presidential
speech. The objective would not be to revive direct negotiations —
almost nobody believes that is likely now — but to enshrine the
proposals Secretary of State John Kerry made during his last failed
effort at peacemaking in 2014."
