The Palestinian politician took to social media on Monday to share the fact that her request for a US visa had been rejected.
Abbas will also seek worldwide support for Palestinian opposition to Trump’s upcoming plan, a senior PA official told The Jerusalem Post.
A Palestinian official was elected to a committee that oversees judicial nominations.
According to the Palestinian Foreign Ministry, the move was made following the relocation of the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The PA joined calls for international investigations into border incidents. The IDF has stated at that at least 10 of those killed were known terrorists.
Responding to Trump’s moves on Jerusalem, Abbas has said that the Palestinians will no longer work with the US as an interlocutor in the peace process between themselves and Israel.
"If he says what he is intending to say about Jerusalem being the capital of Israel, it means a kiss of death to the two state solution."
Palestinian senior officials emphasize that the PA will only accept a solution where Israel withdraws to the pre-1967 borders and east Jerusalem becomes the capital of the future Palestinian State.
Husam Zomlot, who will officially start his role on April 1, sounded very optimistic regarding a potential revival of the peace process right before setting off for Washington.
