Trump declaration on Jerusalem destroys two-state solution - PLO


Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called US President Donald Trump's announcement on Jerusalem a 'declaration of withdrawal' from the Israeli-Palestinian peace process on Wednesday, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

 

The secretary-general of the Palestine Liberation Organization echoed those sentiments, saying Trump had derailed the prospect of a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine and Washington's chances of playing a role in the regional peace process.

 

"He destroyed the two-state solution," Saeb Erekat, former diplomat and chief negotiator for the Palestinians, told journalists after Trump's speech on Wednesday.

 

Trump "disqualified his country from any role whatsoever" in the peace process, Erekat added.

 

"As a chief Palestinian negotiator, how can I sit with these people if they dictate on me the future of Jerusalem as Israel's capital," the politician declared.
