The direct meeting between Israeli and Palestinian Authority negotiators planned to take place in Jordan Tuesday is a "grave political mistake," the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) said Monday.

Meeting with Israel after the conflict has already been taken to bodies of the United Nations "will encourage [the] occupation to go ahead with its aggressiveness against the Palestinian people and their properties," the PFLP said in a written statement reported by Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

The criticism comes despite a denial from the Palestinian Authority that the meeting, the first of its kind in over a year, constitutes negotiations.

The PFLP further alleged that the direct meeting will encourage Arab, Islamic and international actors "to evade their political, legal and moral responsibilities," the statement added.
