PA slams Biden administration over ‘unfulfilled promises’


The US administration has not yet fulfilled any of the promises made by President Joe Biden to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, PA presidential spokesperson Nabil Abu Rudaineh said on Tuesday.

His remarks came one day after he and other senior PA officials, including PLO Executive Committee member Hussein al-Sheikh, held talks in Ramallah with US Deputy Assistant Secretary for Israeli and Palestinian Affairs Hady Amr.

Abu Rudaineh said the “unfulfilled promises” included a pledge to reopen the US Consulate in Jerusalem, maintain the status quo in the city and oppose unilateral Israeli measures, such as the “seizure” of Palestinian money, a reference to tax revenues withheld by Israel in response to payments made by the PA to families of prisoners and “martyrs.”
