Gaza, Rabi'I 19, 1439, Dec 7, 2017, SPA -- Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah Thursday slammed US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as a reversal of all efforts to revive the long-stalled peace process.
According to WAFA, Hamdallah slammed Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as a “provocative” step that “reverses all efforts to revive the peace process and fuels the conflict.”
He expressed his government’s determination to address the most significant challenge of ending the Israeli occupation and establishing the viable, independent and sovereign Palestinian state on 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital.
