Abbas leaves USA hospital and is fine, official says

Hamas preparing for 'post-Abbas era': Senior member

In his speech, Abbas will also propose ideas to the security council on how to counter President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, move the USA embassy to the occupied city, close the Palestinian delegation office in Washington and cut aid to the Palestinians through the United Nations refugee agency.

She said the us will not change its decision on December 6 to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem, a move that has frozen U.S. It calls for mutual recognition by the states of Israel and Palestine based on 1967 borders, and formation of "an global multilateral mechanism" to assist the two parties in resolving all final status issues and implementing them "within a set time frame".

Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas has presented a three-point peace plan centred on convening an global peace conference by mid-year to resolve the intractable conflict with Israel and reiterated his readiness for negotiations.

"I think there is little appetite for other countries to step forward in the way the Palestinians envision", said Rumley.

Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas on Tuesday called for an global conference to be held by mid-2018 to pave the way for recognition of Palestinian statehood as part of a wider Middle East peace process. Her remarks followed a lengthy speech by Abbas in which he denounced the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital as a violation of worldwide law.

The Palestinian Authority leader in recent years has angered Israelis and Americans by noting only Muslim and Christian roots in the Holy Land.

The United Nations granted Palestine the status of a non-member observer state in 1992, but an upgrade to full membership would require unanimous backing from the Security Council - an unlikely outcome, given the near-certainly of a USA veto. It called the speech "old talking points and undeveloped concepts for each of the core issues".

Along the way, her ACLs were worked over so many times you can't help but wonder if there's any original tissue left in her knees. I believed in myself. "Ski racing is an individual sport". "I remain in awe of the women that dominate in our sports", Shaw said.

"We are ready to undertake the longest journeys to the farthest places in the world in order to realise our rights", he said. US officials have said that the embassy could move as soon as next year.

In some sense, the response to Abbas' remarks reflects the degree to which USA relations with the Palestinians have deteriorated since Trump announced his decision to recognize Jerusalem.

Abbas said the conference would be attended by Israel and the Palestinians, regional players, the five permanent Security Council members - Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States - and the diplomatic Quartet comprised of the European Union, Russia, US and the United Nations.

"Our negotiators are sitting right behind me, ready to talk". Until Trump, Abbas was able to chip away at Israel's vital interests. Polling in the past has shown there would be popular support for a final peace deal that settles all issues, although it is not clear that Hamas would allow a referendum or respect its outcome.

The Israeli UN ambassador Danny Danon spoke directly after Abbas, who left the meeting after his speech, and blamed the Palestinian president for inspiring "a culture of hate within Palestinian society".

"Rather than driving just 12 minutes between Ramallah and Jerusalem", Danon said, "he has chosen to fly just 12 hours to NY to avoid the possibility of peace". "He continues to flee from police and continues to pay terrorists and their families $347 million", he said in a statement sent from his office to reporters.

In a related development, Israeli forces rounded up 11 Palestinians in overnight raids across the occupied West Bank, the Israeli army said Thursday.
