Saeb Erekat, secretary general of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said that the Palestinian side will not be part of any peace plan proposed by US president Donald Trump.
During a meeting with Sweden’s State Secretary for Foreign Affairs, Annika SAlder, and the accompanying delegation in Ramallah, Erekat said that the Palestinian stance is firm and that Trump has isolated himself from the peace process, following his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
According to WAFA, this comes in response to statements made by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, during a meeting with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on Sunday, where he said that,
Erekat questioned how peace can be achieved while trying to exclude the issues of Jerusalem and refugees from negotiations, and slammed Pompeo’s statements as totally flawed.
Erekat further reiterated his support to President Mahmoud Abbas’ vision proposed at the UN Security Council, last February.
