Palestinian Ambassador Abdel Hafiz Nofal: we no longer believe that America is a suitable mediator in the peace process

Palestine is hoping for Russia’s help in resolving new tension in relations with Israel. About this program the “Global conversation,” said the Ambassador of this state in Moscow Abdel Hafiz Nofal. Our country, the UN, the EU and the US constitute the so-called Quartet of international mediators in the negotiations between tel Aviv and Ramallah. After the recent statements by Israel’s desire to Annex part of the West Bank of the Jordan river — Palestine broke all agreements with Israel and the United States, and the negotiation process has again stalled. Moscow is ready to provide a platform for a personal meeting between Mahmoud Abbas and Benjamin Netanyahu.

“We, the Palestinians no longer believe that America is a suitable mediator in the peace process. We still believe in Russia’s role in the Quartet, because we are very well aware of her position and appreciate that. Today the problem is that the Americans are trying to impose your plan — I mean “deal of the century”. This unilateral action without any international support. We are dedicated to peace, and we need to achieve it. Our President condemns all violent acts no matter where it was. At the same time, we need our rights and our country. And we believe that the best way to accomplish this is for a two-state solution. And we remember that this approach was supported by 140 countries around the world,” said Abdel Hafiz Nofal, Ambassador of the state of Palestine in the Russian Federation.

“Global conversation” about the prospects of middle East settlement look on TV channel “Russia 24” after 12.00 Moscow time.
