Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday questioned what he called the White House’s “strange” policies on the Middle East.
“We met with the president of the United States, Donald Trump, four times in 2017 and we have expressed our absolute readiness to reach a historic peace agreement. We repeatedly reaffirmed our position in accordance with international law, the relevant UN resolutions and the two-state solution on the basis of the 1967 borders,” Abbas said in a speech to the Security Council.
“Yet this administration (of Trump) has not clarified its position. Is it for the two-state solution, or for one-state?” Abbas asked.
