Palestinian Minister of Foreign Affairs: Usa Design "Requirements to Give Up", Not Peace


Palestinian Foreign Minister
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki criticized "the conditions for surrender" designed by US Middle East peace negotiators, under the pretext of "peace plan". Maliki said in his speech that this was not acceptable. Palestinian officials have ruled out the US role in peace talks, after the Trump administration unilaterally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The United States (US) is compiling a surrender document, not a peace plan, and the Palestinians will not accept it regardless of how much money is offered, the Palestinian Foreign Minister said in a speech at the UN meeting.

Riyad al-Maliki on Thursday (9/5) stated the Palestinian attitude regarding the plan proposed by the Trump administration to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"This is not a peace plan, but rather a condition for surrender," al-Maliki said as US Middle East peace negotiator Jason Greenblatt listened. "And there is no amount of money that can make it accepted."

"Some people ask us, 'what if they surprise you'; we told them that we would be more hopeful if they were not deaf to our requests, blind to Israeli violations, and dumb about the basics of peace, "he added.

Palestinian officials have ruled out the US role in peace talks, after the Trump administration unilaterally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"When the United States - before announcing its plans - recognized Jerusalem as the 'capital of Israel' and claimed that they had the right to take sovereign decisions which blatantly violated international law and UN Security Council resolutions, and pretended not to have implications for peace, no it is possible to believe in such an effort, "Maliki said.

Greenblatt said that it was "shocking and unfair" that Indonesia, Kuwait and South Africa organized a Security Council meeting and condemned Israel's behavior, when Israel "was not even invited to speak at this session".

He added that it was very "inspiring" to see Israel celebrate its 71st independence anniversary on Thursday (9/5), and called it a "brave little country" that grew to become "a rapidly developing and economically diverse democracy" —one one in the Middle East.

He called the Security Council's "obsessive" focus on Israeli settlements a "joke", and said that settlements did not deter Israel and Palestinians from peace negotiations, and said that the Security Council should criticize Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad because recently fired hundreds of rockets to Israel from Gaza.

Speaking from the UN headquarters in New York, Al Jazeera diplomatic correspondent James Bays said that the US envoy for the Middle East still did not want to talk about the upcoming peace plan.

"When he left the meeting, Greenblatt did not want to answer questions from reporters," he said. "He did not want to give further details about the timing of the release of the peace plan, besides saying that it will be released as soon as possible."

Jared Kushner — son-in-law and special adviser to US President Donald Trump — said that the peace plan he led would be released around June, after the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
