US notifies Palestinians: PLO mission in Washington to be shut down


[9/10/2018 8:00:32 AM]

AMMONNEWS - The United States has decided to close the Palestinian mission in Washington in the latest move against them by President Donald Trump, who has been trying to force the Palestinians to negotiate, a Palestinian official said Monday.

"We have been notified by a US official of their decision to close the Palestinian mission to the US," Palestine Liberation Organization secretary-general Saeb Erekat said in a statement.

"This is yet another affirmation of the Trump administration's policy to collectively punish the Palestinian people, including by cutting financial support for humanitarian services including health and education."
