PLO’s Erekat: Israeli call to bar President Abbas from West Bank aims at undermining Palestinian national project

RAMALLAH, Monday, Saeb Erekat, secretary general of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said the Israeli call to prevent President Mahmoud Abbas from returning back to the occupied Palestinian territories after his next trip abroad aims at undermining the Palestinian national project and delegitimizing the PLO.

Israel’s Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan on Sunday proposed barring Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas from returning to the occupied Palestinian territories after his next trip abroad.

Erekat, during an interview with Voice of Palestine radio, stressed that President Abbas heads not only the Palestinian National Authority (PNA), but also the PLO and the state of Palestine.
