The Israeli foreign minister said Tuesday the plan starts with a cease-fire, soon after which a Palestinian state would be declared, with the borders still to be defined. It would be recognized by Israel while Palestinians would recognize the Jewish state. The borders of the Palestinian state would be worked out in the final stage.
