Ishtayeh: US decisions are worse than 'Deal of the Century'

April 23, 2019 4:56 P.M. (Updated: April 24, 2019 9:48 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Prime Minister Muhammad Ishtayeh said, on Tuesday, that the actions and decisions of the United States administration regarding the Palestinians and their cause including cutting aid to UNRWA, moving the embassy to Jerusalem, and recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel are worse than the text of the so-called "Deal of the Century."

This came during a meeting Ishtayeh held at his office in Ramallah City, in the central occupied West Bank, with US Senator Ron Wyden, where the two discussed the latest political developments.

Ishtayeh said, "Talking about annexing parts of the West Bank under the so-called settlement blocs destroys the two-state solution and eliminates any chance of establishing an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders."

Ishtayeh added, "We must separate the Palestinian-American relations from the peace process or the political process that is going on. The stalemate of the peace process must not be met with punishment or blackmail from the American administration of the Palestinian people. We want it to be an honest peace broker."
Ishtayeh also called on the US Congress to follow suit of many other world parliaments and vote to recognize the State of Palestine and to lift the sanctions imposed on the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).
