President to inform UN Secretary-General of reasons to end to agreements with Israel

 

RAMALLAH, Wednesday, May 20, 2020 (WAFA) – Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Minister  Riyad Al-Maliki announced today that President Mahmoud Abbas will inform the UN Secretary-General António Guterres about the reasons behind the leadership‘s decision to abolish all agreements with Israel.

Speaking to the Voice of Palestine radio, al-Maliki added that Abbas was in contact with Arab and worldwide leaders to inform them about the thrust of this step, and mobilize strong international positions against Israel’s annexation decision.

He added that Abbas called on the countries not to just release statements of condemnations, but rather to threaten to impose sanctions on Israel following its illegal annexation move.

He reiterated that the international community already knew that the Palestinian leadership would take the decision to abolish all agreements and understandings with Israel, following the Israeli coalition agreement to advance the annexation plan.

He pointed out that Palestine would press ahead with signing and acceding to more international conventions and organizations, a step that has become a necessity especially after the US reneged on all commitments.
