Palestinian officials have threatened to withdraw from the Oslo Accords signed with Israel if U.S President Donald Trump announces his Middle East peace plan this week.
In a statement on Sunday, the Palestinian Authority’s foreign ministry called for “a clear international declaration rejecting ‘the deal of the century'” that it said would endanger regional stability.
The Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement, signed in Washington in 1995, sought to put into practice the first Oslo peace deal agreed two years earlier.
Chief Palestinian negotiation Saeb Erekat said that the Palestinian Liberation Organization reserved the right “to withdraw from the interim agreement,” the concrete part of the Oslo deal, if Trump unveils his plan.
Palestinian officials claimed that they had assurances from both the EU and Arab nations that the peace plan will be rejected.
