Presidential spokesman: No peace without all of East Jerusalem as capital of the State of Palestine

RAMALLAH, Thursday, Presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh said on Wednesday that any peace plan that does not include the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital on the 1967 borders would be doomed to failure.

He said in a statement reacting to reports and leaks about the so-called deal of the century the American administration is trying to impose on the region in addition to efforts to find regional and international parties willing to cooperate with this plan that all these attempts will reach a dead end because the address for achieving a just and lasting peace is the Palestinian leadership that affirms that any proposals related to the political process must be based on international resolutions and the principle of the two-state solution for the establishment of the independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Abu Rudeineh stressed that the road to achieving peace in the region is clear and it passes through the legitimate Palestinian leadership, and any projects aimed at circumventing the hopes and aspirations of the Palestinian people for freedom and independence will not succeed and will terminate. Our people will win regardless of the magnitude of these conspiracies and challenges facing our cause and our national constants.
