Foreign Affairs and Expatriates// Kushner and his Team’s Positions Deliberately Deteriorate the Peace Opportunity Presented by President Abbas's Vision
The contradicting and imbalanced statements of Trump’s team emphasize their adoption of the Israeli vision, promoting Zionist ideas. This time, Kushner chose to reveal the next step, which will serve and pursue the liquidation of the refugee issue and their right to return, in accordance to the UN Resolution 194. This step was reflected earlier through besieging the aid of the UNRWA, and redefining Palestinian refugees to reduce their numbers, as Kushner stated: The American Peace Plan calls for "permanent settlement" of Palestinian refugees in the places where they reside, rather than returning them to the "land which belongs now to the State of Israel".
The ministry condemns, in the strongest terms, the US President brother-in-law’s statements, which degrades our people and leadership ,reflects the United States support to the Israeli colonization of the State of Palestine’s ,and an extension of Trump's administration’s rebellion against international legitimacy and system.
The Ministry believes that Kushner’s positions and statements serve the deepening of the Apartheid regime in occupied Palestine, as his statements are a blatant interference in the internal Palestinian affairs.
The Ministry affirms that our people reject these ideas which contradict international legitimacy, and the references of the peace process, and consider that their main objective is to destroy and sabotage the real peace opportunity provided by the vision of President Mahmoud Abbas.
