Palestinian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Riad al-Malki said the Palestinian leadership is discussing with the brotherly Arab countries practical steps to respond to the US administration’s announcement regarding the ‘deal of the century’, at all levels.
This came during a meeting in Ramallah with Egyptian Ambassador to the State of Palestine Essam El-Din Ashour, where they discussed the Palestinian diplomatic moves to face the US administration’s decision to release the so-called “deal of the century”.
Malki briefed the Egyptian ambassador on the implications of the US administration’s announcement of the so-called deal of the century. He stressed the clear and consistent position of the Palestinian leadership in rejecting the decisions of the American administration regarding Jerusalem and everything related to the rejected deal of the century.
Malki praised the Arab and international consensus rejecting this deal, and supporting the Palestinian leadership in all its decisions. He further praised the deep historic relations between the two countries and Egypt’s continued support to Palestinian efforts.
For his part, the ambassador affirmed his country’s fixed stance in support of the Palestinian decisions which fall in the fundamental interest of the Palestinian people.
Ashour stressed the need for coordination and consultation in this regard to come out with a unified Arab and international position towards what is happening in the region, praising the strong bilateral relations between both countries.
