PLO Central Council to convene in Ramallah

RAMALLAH, The PLO Central Council, the second highest Palestinian decision making body after the National Council, is scheduled to meet on Sunday in Ramallah.

Mahmoud Aloul, deputy chairman of ruling Fatah movement, has earlier said that the meeting aims to establish mechanisms for the implementation of the decisions of previous sessions of the national and central councils.

Aloul was referring to decisions that have to do with re-defining relations with Israel, which the Palestinians say has reneged on all agreements it had signed with them, starting with the 1993 Oslo Accords, and with the US administration, which recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and closed the Palestinian mission in Washington.

We want to be able to have our natural rights back, particularly since the Palestinians are the only party still honoring these agreements, said Aloul.
