PA: Kerry Threatens to Cut All Aid If No Peace Deal Signed


kerryUS Secretary of State John Kerry has threatened to discontinue all American aid to the Palestinian Authority if the current round of negotiations does not result in a peace agreement, Taysir Khaled, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, claimed Thursday in a report in Ma’ariv.

“So far, the negotiations did not lead to a significant breakthrough on essential issues,” Khaled said in Ramallah. “The Palestinian side cannot sign a framework agreement because it does not comply with our minimum requirements and with the rights of the Palestinians. We will not give up on the Palestinian cause for money.”

The two sides have reportedly been at odds over almost every aspect of the core issues involved in a two-state accord.
