Along with ‘Israel’, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will participate in a conference next month in Bahrain aimed at allegedly encouraging investment in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, which is in fact part of US President Donald Trump’s so-called ‘deal of century.’

The economic workshop, to be hosted on June 25-26 in cooperation with the United States, has already been rebuffed by Palestinian officials and business leaders who stress that their political demands be addressed in any solution to the decades-old conflict.

The Palestine Liberation Organization [PLO] and Palestinian resistance group Hamas have called for an Arab boycott of the meeting.

The Saudi minister of economy and planning will attend, state news agency SPA confirmed on Wednesday. The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said Abu Dhabi would also send a delegation.

The Palestinian Authority boycotted so-called US ‘peace’ efforts since late 2017 when Trump decided to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied al-Quds, recognizing the holy city as the capital of the Zionist entity.
