The political committee of the Palestinian National Council (PNC) is studying the potential abolition of the Oslo Peace Accords and Palestinian recognition of Israel, the body’s Deputy Secretary-General Qais Abdul-Karim said yesterday.
Speaking to Quds Press, Abdul-Karim said that the PNC’s political committee “is taking decisions which could change its fate”, noting that it “is the body which is authorised to take decisions regarding the relationship with Israel.”
He expected that the PNC might take “clear decisions” related to the Oslo obligations that “restricted” the Palestinian Authority (PA) during its upcoming meeting which is expected to take place early next week.
Abdul-Karim stressed that the Israeli occupation had “turned its back on the Oslo Accords, as well as on its obligations stipulated by the peace agreement.”
Hamas and Islamic Jihad are expected to take part in the upcoming PNC meeting, he said, in enable the body to “take national decisions” regarding future relations with Israel.
