Iranian Foreign Minister Mottaki said at a press conference in Jordan on Saturday that the Saudi peace plan was doomed to fail, and that, instead, a "democratic free and fair referendum" should be held, where what he called original Muslim, Christian and Jewish Palestinians would vote and choose their regime. "Despite the good [intentions] of some countries and some parties to protect the right of Palestinians, we do believe that either due to the plans or due to the other side's approach, all of those plans will fail," said Mottaki, citing the issues of Jerusalem and "the returning of the refugees who stand up to five million Palestinians" as key obstacles.
