'A thousand noes': Palestinian leader rejects Trump peace plan

Jan 29, 2020 14:48 IST

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said "a thousand noes" to the Mideast peace plan announced by President Donald Trump, which strongly favours Israel. Speaking at a press conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Abbas said the Palestinians remain committed to ending the Israeli occupation and establishing a state with its capital in east Jerusalem. The US plan would create a Palestinian state in parts of the West Bank but would allow Israel to annex nearly all of its settlements in the occupied territory. The plan would also allow the Palestinians to establish a capital on the outskirts of east Jerusalem but would leave most of the city under Israeli control.
