JERUSALEM (VINnews) — PA officials, including President Abbas and other senior officials, have said they will make a number of demands of USA President-elect Joe Biden, according to Hebrew news site Yisrael Hayom.
The Palestinians intend to request that peace negotiations restart from where Obama left off in 2016, as well as demanding that the US embassy be relocated back to Tel Aviv. Joe Biden specifically stated during his campaign that he would not be relocating the embassy to Tel Aviv but the Palestinians hope to bring international pressure to prevail on Biden regarding the two-state solution which he supports which would enable them to declare their capital in Jerusalem.
The Palestinians also intend to reopen their diplomatic mission in Washington and to request renewed American aid to UNRWA, the United Nations organization which ostensibly deals with refugees worldwide but in reality only provides relief for indigenous Palestinians in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza strip. The Palestinians will also request that the foreign aid, which was cut off by the Trump administration since they refused to stop the “pay for slay” payments to terrorists families, be restored to them.
