Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s statements are unacceptable and constitute "pre-conditions," the Palestinian Authority said in rejection on Monday.

Nabil Abu Rudaineh, spokesman for PA President Mahmoud Abbas, said that peace requires that east Jerusalem become the capital of the state of Palestine and that all final-status issues be solved at the negotiating table and in accordance with the road map and international laws.

“Netanyahu’s statements prove once again that Israel is not interested in peace and that it continues to challenge the international community,” Abu Rudaineh said. “But that won’t stop the Palestinian people from demanding their full rights, including going to the UN.”
