Ramallah : Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has stressed on the need to implement decisions against Israel, the US and the Islamic Hamas movement.

Abbas was speaking during a meeting at the presidential headquarters in Ramallah with Advisory Council of his Fatah Party, Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA quoted Abbas as saying that “the Palestinian political and diplomatic work goes on to stop the (Israeli) occupation against our people and our land.”

“It’s necessary to implement the decisions of the Central Council of Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), which has been taken regarding the relations with Israel, the US and Hamas,” said Abbas.

The US administration decided to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel last year and moved the US embassy in Israel to the city in May.

This year, US President Donald Trump made a series of decisions such as the closure of the PLO office in Washington and the cessation of financial support for Palestinians as well as the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees.

Two days ago, Abbas threatened to take decisions, including the dissolution of the Palestinian Legislative Council, which Hamas controls the majority of it.
