The United States has prepared its own draft outline for a UN resolution demanding a cease-fire between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza and is now working with European powers and Jordan on a joint text, diplomats said on Monday.

US officials and diplomats from other UN member states said that Washington had presented a small group of countries with its own draft elements for a Security Council resolution after Jordan offered one last month and Britain, France and Germany wrote another proposal last week.

"The US has come up with its own draft," said a UN diplomat, who declined to be named. "It's quite different from the two others. Now they're working to combine the drafts and come up with a common text."
