The PA reiterates its refusal to accept a draft agreement with Israel on the establishment of a Palestinian state without Jerusalem as its Capital Mother. PA states, without Jerusalem, there is no peace agreement with Israel.
"Any attempt to promote suspicious ideas from any party, and under obscure slogans and endless positions, will have no value or usefulness," said PA spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina, as reported by Anadolu Agency on Tuesday (24/4).
"We are telling those who try to avoid Arab peace initiatives and international legitimacy resolutions by submitting unclear proposals or slogans that your efforts will be doomed to failure No Palestinian or Arab will accept it There will be no solution without the establishment of a Palestinian state merdeka, with East Jerusalem as its Capital Mother, "he continued.
He did not explain the reason he issued the statement. However, a number of PA officials stated that some countries have advised PAs to accept US (US) ideas to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
"Those ideas do not include East Jerusalem as the future Palestinian capital, and the Palestinian territories based on that idea will be very small to say as a state," said a source speaking in anonymous conditions.
Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with the Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem, now occupied by Israel, may eventually serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.
The holy city attracted the world's attention in December when US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, sparking world protests and protests in the Palestinian territories.
