Presidency: ''Deal of the Century' slowed down, not over yet'

July 21, 2018 3:19 P.M. (Updated: July 23, 2018 3:47 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Presidency's spokesman, Nabil Abu Rdeineh, said on Saturday that "thanks to the steadfastness of the Palestinian people the leadership's commitment to the national constants, the US-led 'deal of the century' has been thwarted."

Abu Rdeineh added that if the deal succeeds, it would become a regional deal affecting all the region.

Official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa News Agency reported that Abu Rdeineh said in a statement that "the region is now at a crossroads to decide the fate of principle issues that affect the higher interests of its peoples, which some parties may jeopardize by creating a clear break up of the nationalist position."

Abu Rdeineh added that "they have to stick together" to prevent the transformation of the "deal of the century," which he said had slowed down but not over yet.

"The commitment of the Palestinian leadership to the Palestinian and Arab choices and to our national principles will keep the hope of a nation that is still suffering and burning as a result of its lack of understanding and awareness of what has been planned for it for many years."

Abu Rdeineh said that the "prevailing chaos" in the region is a natural result of not solving the Palestinian cause.

"As long as Jerusalem is burning, the Arab world will continue to burn, which is contrary to the necessities of regional security."

He added that "it is necessary now is to restore the national spirit in the face of the sudden repercussions that the region may be exposed to, especially the US blatant bias towards Israel and the imbalance of power. All of these have created heavy burdens that we must all bear and confront in order to reach safety and provide a better best future for the region and its peoples."
