PLO Erekat: US already implementing “deal of the century”


RAMALLAH, April 21, 2018 (WAFA) – Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Saeb Erekat, said on Saturday the United States administration has already started executing the “deal of the century” by recognizing Jerusalem as capital of Israel.

Speaking at a press conference in Ramallah, Erekat said the US administration has no longer been a partner and sponsor of peace since US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

He called on the countries of the world, especially the member countries of the United Nations, not to comply with the US pressure to relocate their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, since East Jerusalem is an occupied territory under international law.

“The threatening and extortion practiced by the Trump administration comes in defense of the grave violations committed by Israel against international law and international legitimacy, leading the region to chaos and violence,” Erekat remarked.
