Abbas on Trump Mideast deal: Jerusalem is not for sale
Following the introduction of the Trump administration's deal of the century, Palestinian National Authority (PNA) President Mahmoud Abbas staid that Jerusalem is not for sale, and dubbed the offer a "conspiracy".
Abbas observed that the deal "is not going to happen" and that people will throw it in the "garbage can of history".
"Jerusalem is not for sale, the 'deal of the century' will not go through, and our people will send it to the garbage can of in history," Abbas said. "We will not bow and we will not surrender ... we are united in the face of all the extermination plans that our people will reject. We say 'no, no, no,' to the deal of the century," TASS cited him as saying.
On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump unveiled his long-anticipated 'deal of the century' - a peace plan for the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. According to a map published by the Trump White House, Palestinians have been offered two significant plots of land in the south of Israel connected with the Gaza Strip.
