Palestinians will not meet with any US mediator


The Palestinian president, Mahmud Abbas, considers that EE. UU He has taken part in the conflict and considers it discredited as a mediator of a peace process.

The Palestinians are no longer willing to meet with the US mediators in the conflict, after the president of that country, Donald Trump, last week recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and following the latest statements about the Western Wall.

“In accordance with what the (Palestinian) President Mahmoud Abbas expressed at the Istanbul Summit of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the Palestinian authorities will not meet with any US official to discuss the peace process “presidential diplomat Majdi Jaldi said today (17.12.2017).

An adviser to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told the Times of Israel newspaper today that the indefinite “boycott” also affects US envoy Jason Greenblatt and Jared Kushner, son-in-law of President Trump.

Abbas cancels the meeting with Pence

After the last day 6 Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and announced the transfer to that city of the US Embassy, currently in Tel Aviv, Abbas canceled the meeting with the US Vice President, Mike Pence, who visits the region this week .

According to the official agenda, Pence will arrive from Egypt on Wednesday, will attend the Israeli Parliament (Knesset) the next day and will meet with the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, but will not move to the Palestinian territories.

The Wailing Wall, a remnant of the second temple in Jerusalem, is the most sacred place in the world for Jews. It is located at the foot of the Temple Mount or Temple Mount, sacred to both Jews and Muslims, where the mosques of Al Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock are located.

Administered by Jordan, it is one of the hot spots of disputes between Israelis and Palestinians over the future status of Jerusalem, which Israelis see as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state. The Palestinians, on the other hand, claim the eastern zone, occupied in 1967 by Israel and annexed later and that includes the Esplanade, as the capital of its future State.
