Mahmoud Abbas Slams Trump’s Efforts as ’Slap of the Century’
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas considered US President Donald Trump's so-called Middle East peace efforts as the "slap of the century" after his recognition of occupied al-Quds as the Zionist entity's capital.
"The deal of the century is the slap of the century and we will not accept it," said Abbas referring to Trump's vow to reach the "ultimate deal."
Speaking at a Sunday meeting of Palestinian officials held over how to deal with Trump's al-Quds move, Abbas stressed that "We said 'no' to Trump, 'we will not accept your project'."
Last month, Trump announced that Washington would recognize the holy city of al-Quds as the ‘capital' of Zionist entity and would relocate the US embassy in the ‘Israeli'-occupied territories from Tel Aviv to the occupied city.
Abbas also branded the US ambassadors to the UN and to the ‘Israeli' entity, Nikki Haley and David Friedman, a "disgrace."
He further stressed that Palestinians will continue with their demand that Britain apologize over the Balfour declaration which led to the formation of the ‘Israeli' regime.
"We continue to demand an apology from the British for the Balfour Declaration, and we will continue to demand their recognition of a Palestinian state," said Abbas.
