The President of the Palestinian national authority Mahmoud Abbas met in Ramallah with the new head of the CIA Mike Pompeo. According to the Agency Maan, the subject of discussion was the situation on the eve of a meeting of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Donald trump.
The meeting was attended by head of the Palestinian General intelligence Majid Faraj. Reportedly, the meeting was held in a friendly atmosphere and was fruitful. Separately noted that chief among the issues discussed was the implementation of the principle of «Two States for two peoples.»
Meanwhile, the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Palestinian authority criticized the statement of the anonymous representative of the American administration, under which the United States will not insist on this principle, put forward by the Bush administration.
«If the statement attributed to the representative of the United States is true, this is a significant success of Benjamin Netanyahu, even before he met with trump. Such a development seems to us very dangerous,» the statement said.
