ISLAMABAD - Palestinian President Mehmood Abbas gives a stern warning to the United States.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has warned that Palestine could fully sever relations with the United States after the White House defied international law and backed Israeli settlements built on occupied Palestinian land.
Talking to media, he said that the step taken by the US has been condemned by “almost every country in the world,” and that Palestinian authorities would not allow the move to go unanswered.
Meanwhile, thousands of Palestinians held protests in several West Bank cities against the remarks by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Israeli settlements.
