Palestinians recall envoy to US for talks on future ties

The Palestinian Overseas Minister suggests the Palestinian envoy to Washington is being briefly called back for consultations around the future of relations using the U . s ..

The transfer comes right after President Donald Trump identified Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, location off unrest and prompting the Palestinians to reject Washington as a Mideast peace broker, a task it has held for decades.

International Minister Riad Malki suggests Sunday that discussions would happen “to set the selections needed from the Palestinian management while in the coming interval pertaining to our relations together with the US.” He states the envoy is expected to return to “his ordinary work” once the conversations.

Trump’s final decision upended many years of U.S. international plan and countered an international consensus the fate of Jerusalem should be determined in negotiations.
