TASS, January 16. The Central Council of the Palestine liberation Organization (PLO) called on Monday the voting in Ramallah to suspend recognition of Israel as a state in response to the decision of the President of the United States Donald trump to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. This was reported by AFP referring to the statement of the governing body of the PLO.

“The Central Board requested the Executive Committee of the PLO to suspend the recognition of Israel as long as it does not recognize the state of Palestine in the 1967 borders, will not cancel the annexation of East Jerusalem and did not stop colonization”, – the document says.

The PLO is recognized by the international community as the only legitimate representative of the Palestinian people . The Central Council is its enlarged governing body, which shall be convened between sessions of the Palestine National Council (Parliament in exile).

6 December 2017 trump said about the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state and the transfer of the American Embassy in this city from tel Aviv. The status of Jerusalem is one of the key problems in Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Israel occupied the Eastern part of the city during the 1967 war and insist that Jerusalem is “one and indivisible” capital of Israel. In turn, the Palestinians want to make East Jerusalem the capital of their state.
