Erekat: Israel and the Trump administration are destroying the two-state solution

 Secretary of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Saeb Erekat, on Monday accused Israel and the administration of US President Donald Trump of destroying the internationally backed two-state solution to solve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Erekat said, in a statement after receiving in the West Bank an American delegation of Hispanic origin, that the status of the peace process has been the result of the practices and decisions of the Trump administration and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, "which really aims to destroy the principle of a two-state solution on the 1967 borders and the references of the peace process, law International and international legality. "

In particular, he referred to Trump's decision at the end of 2017 to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and try to legalize Israeli settlement, and to drop the refugee file by destroying the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

Erekat stressed that peace will be achieved "when Israel adheres to the foundations and pillars of international law and international legitimacy, which affirmed the necessity of ending the occupation that began in 1967 and embodying the independence of the State of Palestine with its capital in East Jerusalem."

Erekat stressed that the Israeli government must be obligated not to obstruct the holding of Palestinian presidential and legislative elections in East Jerusalem.
