PLO Calls for UN-Sponsored Conference on Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

PLO Calls for UN-Sponsored Conference on Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Palestinian sources said the council will also discuss the internal Palestinian reconciliation between Hamas and President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah Party, as well as Palestinian strategies toward US and Israel policies over Jerusalem.

In a wide-ranging two-hour speech, Abbas reiterated he would not accept the Trump administration as a mediator in peace talks with Israel and called for an internationally-led process.

Abbas also said Israel had "ended" the landmark Oslo peace accords of the 1990s with its actions, while branding the United States ambassadors to the United Nations and to Israel, Nikki Haley and David Friedman, a "disgrace".

"We are in a very risky stage", Abbas said.

He added that "the meeting will be held without a specific agenda, which strengthened the conviction by the movement's leadership that no concrete decisions will be taken".

Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas blasted Trump for his handling of Mideast peace efforts.

"Now we say "No" to Trump, we won't accept his plan - we say the "deal of the century" is the slap of the century", noted Abbas, referring to the U.S. president's pledge to achieve the "ultimate deal" - peace in the Middle East.

Abbas said "shame on you" for Trump's claim that the Palestinians refuse to negotiate.

The administration is reviewing a proposal to send less than half of a planned $125 million payment and demand that other countries pay more, according to two people familiar with the deliberations.

A decision is expected by Monday, a person said.

Trump stressed his recognition wasn't taking a position on the city's boundaries.

The West Bank conference opened a day after Israel bombed a cross-border tunnel in the Gaza Strip that it said was meant for attacks by members of the militant Hamas organization that runs the territory.

He also said he advocated only "peaceful popular resistance".

Even so, Abbas reaffirmed his commitment to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Hamas didn't participate in Abbas's meeting in Ramallah.
