Press Secretary of the President of the Palestinian national authority Nabil Abu rudeina said that the US decision on the termination of direct financial assistance on the background of recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital is equivalent to a Declaration of war.
According to him, the termination of funding of the PLO and the UN Agency for Palestinian refugees will only strengthen the resolve of the Palestinians to achieve their national goals. «We will overcome all obstacles on this path,» he said, accusing the U.S. of violating international law.
According to media publications, the intransigence of the Palestinian authority forced the US administration to abandon the publication of the plan of the Palestinian-Israeli settlement, known as the «deal of the century».
A few days ago, the newspaper «al-Hayat» reported with sukoi to Western diplomatic sources that the US is trying to find a formula acceptable to both sides. «It is impossible to impose it on the Palestinians by force. If it will support the Palestinian authority, and Israel, joined by Arab countries,» said they.
The publication did not rule out that the Americans are going to wait for the departure from the political arena of the President of the Palestinian national authority Mahmoud Abbas. The leader of the Palestinian authority is in its ninth decade, and his health is deteriorating.
