Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Tuesday that he rejected the US so-called “peace plan” because of its unilateral steps and because it violates United Nations resolutions.

Speaking before the UN Security Council on the American so-called “deal of the century”, presented in Washington on January 28, President Abbas said the plan annuls Palestinian legitimacy and rights to self-determination, freedom and independence while legitimizing illegal Israeli settlements and annexation of occupied Palestinian land.

Abbas urged the international community not to consider the plan as an international reference for negotiations. “It is an Israeli-American pre-emptive plan in order to put an end to the question of Palestine,” he said.

The Palestinian President stressed that the plan was rejected because it does not bring peace or stability to the region, rather it rewards the occupation instead of holding it accountable for its crimes. He also maintained that the Palestinians will confront its application on the ground.

Abbas said the US plan cancels achieving peace because it cancels all UN resolutions and all rights of the Palestinian people. He called for convening an international peace conference in the presence of Palestine and Israel and to have an international mechanism to bring real peace between the Palestinians and Israel.
