Palestine to Seek Full UN Membership Despite Threat of US Veto - Adviser


Palestinians seek diplomatic recognition for their independent state on the territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, which is partially occupied by Israel, and the Gaza Strip.

Palestinians view East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. "So we are just going to have to see what happens". I am right now interested in the Palestinians and Israel.

Erekat stressed in the document that the Palestinian leadership should not give US President Donald Trump's plan a chance or even examine it. Erekat affirmed that there is no reason to wait for such a plan that would preserve the status quo as is, legitimize Israeli settlements and establish the current Palestinian self-rule.

Trump's declaration prompted Abbas to formally declare that Palestinians would no longer accept the USA as a mediator to resolve the decades-long conflict as Washington is "completely biased" towards Tel Aviv.

It has become apparent that the U.S. administration's plan, which complies with Israeli aspirations, is on the point of being presented, following repeated leaks related to its details.

Washington Post says that Trump's "comments about Israel mark rare criticism from a president who has publicly sparred with the Palestinians while forging warm ties with Israel ahead of the expected presentation of a United States peace outline".

Top Palestinian officials condemned the move, saying it disqualified the USA from playing the role of arbiter.

On November 29, 2012, the United Nations designated Palestine as a non-member observer state after a vote by the General Assembly.

Trump said he could understand why a number of other presidents who made moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem a campaign pledge, "bailed on their promise", because "I will tell you, the lobbying against it was tremendous". "When I think of the likely consequences I think this is more ambivalent", Gabriel said.

US President Donald Trump on Sunday said in an interview published today that he was "not necessarily sure" Israel was seeking to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians.

In addition to recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, United States administration has also cut funding to UN agency assisting Palestinian refugees and threatened to withhold money to Palestinians unless they resume negotiations with Israel.

Trump also said the Israeli settlements in the West Bank "complicate" matters, stating that Israel "needs to act with caution on the topic of settlements".

In addition, according to Trump, Obama was "terrible" for Israel because he facilitated the nuclear deal with Iran.

"I think we are very good partners and friends, so we can have frank conversations when we disagree".
