Mahmoud Abbas asks United Nations for multilateral action, no to US

Mahmoud Abbas speaks during a United Nations Security Council meeting on Tuesday

Relations between the USA and Palestinian leadership have declined in recent months.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is expected to demand the implementation of the two-state solution between Palestine and Israel and oppose US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, when he addresses the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Tuesday.

Mr Abbas told the Security Council that "to solve the Palestine question.it is essential to establish a multilateral worldwide mechanism".

"But as Ambassador Haley warned, setting forth old talking points and undeveloped concepts for each of the core issues will not achieve peace", Raffel added. I will not shut up.

"I sit here today offering the outstretched hand of the United States to the Palestinian people in the cause of peace". US officials have said that the embassy could move as soon as next year. Palestinians seek East Jerusalem, occupied by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war, as the capital of a future Palestinian state. "You are the problem", Danon said.

"These huge security and humanitarian challenges throughout the region should occupy more of our attention, rather than having us sit here month after month and use the most democratic country in the Middle East as a scapegoat for the region's problems", she said.

Abbas, who spoke earlier, left the chamber before either the Israeli or the American representatives could respond- a clear diplomatic slight.

He further stated that "the claim that a peace agreement is needed to preserve Israel as a Jewish and democratic state is a stale one.For 25 years people have said that the situation can not continue, but what happened in those years?"

Mladenov called it one of the major obstacles to peace. Top Palestinian officials condemned the move, saying it disqualified the USA from playing the role of arbiter.

Israel, which often accuses the European Union and the United Nations of bias against it, is reluctant to accept any other mediator than the United States. Zehava Galon, chairwoman of the left-wing Meretz party, praised Abbas's suggestion of an global peace conference, but said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would be unable to agree to a deal.

"Today, once again, rather than driving just 12 minutes between Ramallah to Jerusalem he has chosen to fly 12 hours to NY to avoid the possibility of peace".

Haley said that Abbas faced two paths: one of anger toward the Americans and incitement of Palestinians to violence against Israelis, or one of direct negotiations with both. Netanyahu referred to PLO payments to the families of Palestinians killed or captured while attacking Israelis.

"They need leadership that will negotiate with Israel, speak to us and not run away from dialogue", Danon said.
