Presidency: Only map of State of Palestine is the one based on 1967 borders

 

RAMALLAH, Saturday, February 8, 2020 (WAFA) – Nabil Abu Rudeineh, spokesman for President Mahmoud Abbas, said today that the only recognized map of the State of Palestine is the one based on the borders of June 4, 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Abu Rudeineh said the Palestinian leadership will disregard any alterations to the internationally recognized map of the State of Palestine.

His statement came in response to remarks made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netnyahu, in which he said that Israel, together with officials from the US administration, began drawing a map for the "implementation of Israeli sovereignty" over parts of the West Bank.

Abu Rudeineh said, “The map of the State of Palestine is the map recognized by the world in accordance with the United Nations resolutions, and it is the only one that can achieve security, peace and stability in the region and the world.

“Any other maps mean the continuation of the [Israeli] occupation and cannot be accepted.”
