September 26, 2016 15:29

PLO Secretary General Saeb Erekat on Monday condemned Republican White House contender Donald Trump for saying under his potential presidency the US would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's undivided capital.

Erekat charged that Trump's remarks - made during a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday - show "disregard for international law." The senior PLO official continued, accusing, the GOP presidential candidate of "neglecting" calls for a two-state solution between Israel and Palestinians. "Previous statements delivered by [Trump's] adviser on Israel show a total abandonment of the two-state solution, international law and UN resolutions," Erekat asserted.
