Some 600,000 Palestinian-Americans were harmed by the closure of the PLO’s office in Washington, Quds Press reported yesterday.
A statement released by the Palestinian Council in the United State said that the closure of the PLO’s office “is another American step towards liquidating the Palestinians issue”.
“The consequences of the closure of the PLO’s office included humanitarian factors related to the consulate services.”
The council condemned the US’ decision saying it comes in line with America’s move to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and removing the holy city off the negotiating table.
In addition, the statement accused the current American administration of siding with the most right-wing Israeli government, “which continues its measures towards liquidating the Palestinian issue and reinforcing the Zionist entity as a regional power.”
The statement also accused the US administration of legalising Israeli settlements and calling off the two-state solution.
