However, Mahmoud Abbas categorically rejected the possibility of using the plan of Donald trump in the framework of the Middle East settlement.

“There’s no room even for part of the American deal at the negotiating table,” he said, adding that American representatives have already been notified of this position. At the same time, Abbas noted that Palestine “still believes in peace.”
