Abbas: Calls US Embassy in Yerushalayim A ‘Settlement’

2

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas condemned the opening of the American embassy in Yerushalayim Monday as a “settlement.”

Speaking at the start of a meeting of PA leadership in Ramallah, Abbas called the embassy “a new American settlement outpost in Jerusalem.”

Abbas stated that the US recognition of Israel’s capital means that “the United States is no longer a mediator in the peace process – the removal of Jerusalem and the refugees means an American slap [in our faces].”
