PLO Executive Committee slams Kushner‘s remarks on Palestinian refugees


RAMALLAH, Thursday, July 04, 2019 (WAFA) – The Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization has sternly slammed remarks made by US President Donald Trump‘s top adviser Jared Kushner, in which he said that his Middle East peace plan will seek to better integrate Palestinian refugees inside Arab countries.

In press remarks, Kushner appeared to favor normalization of the status of Palestinian refugees who were forced out of their homes in pre-1948 Palestine when Israel was created in 1948, as well as their descendants.

"This situation exists because it exists. And when we put out a political solution, we‘re going to try to put forward the best proposed solutions that we think are pragmatic, achievable and viable in this day and age," he said.

Commenting on Kushner‘s remarks, the PLO Executive Committee said it has become clear that the US envoys are destroying any opportunity to bring about a just peace in the region. It described the US ambassador to Israel as a hardcore settler who has undermined any American role in the region through his partnership with Israel‘s far right and settler organizations.

The Executive Committee called on the international community to reject Israel‘s attempts to impose the "law of the jungle", and to pressure it to implement the resolutions of the international community in order to achieve regional security, stability and peace by recognizing the State of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital.
