PLO, Fatah decry US threat states
RAMALLAH: Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and Fatah Thursday decried Trump’s threat to cut aid to countries that vote against his decision on Jerusalem.
Hanan Ashrawi, an executive member of the PLO, condemned the U.S. UN ambassador Nikki Haley’s letter to UN member diplomats that she threatened not to vote against the decision.
“Haley’s threats will leave Washington administration alone,” the statement said.
“We will not give up, we will not be afraid. We believe that the members of the UN General Assembly will protect their political and legal commitment to the Palestini-an issue with an overwhelming majority,” it added.
Fatah spokesman Osama al-Qawasm described Tru-mp’s threat as blackmailing and an attack to the sovereignty of the member states.
He also wished the world countries would stand against the threats of the U.S.
