Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas To Ask UNSC To Implement Two-State Solution

Abbas at UN

PA spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina revealed details of the expected speech by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday.

He said Abbas will stress that the Palestinian leadership will not relinquish the establishment of an independent state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The initiative will call for "an worldwide conference to overlook preparations for peace talks based on the two-state solution", Malki noted.

Ambassador to the United Nations, Ambassador Riyad Mansour, spoke to Voice of Palestine radio on Monday, stating that Abbas will call for resolution on the part of the United Nations in addressing the future of the two-state solution and the endangerment of the peace process in light of recent political manoeuvres by the United States.

The 2015 Iranian nuclear agreement negotiated by the so-called P5+1 - the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany - is seen by many Palestinians as a good example.

"We can live with different formats, the P5, P5+1, expanded Quartet, we can live with an global peace conference", Qudwa told a news conference in Ramallah.

Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon will also address the council.

With Trump continuing to threaten cuts to Palestinian aid and the USA likely to veto any proposal to upgrade PA membership from its current "non-member state" status, expect relations between the Trump administration and Abbas to worsen as U.S. policy pivots away from cooperation and compromise with the Palestinians.

'The president's speech will ask the Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities and implement its decisions regarding the implementation of the two-state solution and the Trump Declaration on Jerusalem and put an end to the tragedy and injustice our people suffer as a result of the occupation, ' said Mansour.

"At this stage I don't think the statement will be followed immediately by any specific action within the United Nations system, whether at the Security Council or otherwise", Qudwa added.

President Donald Trump's decision to move the United States embassy to Jerusalem caused outrage, sparking protests across the world, and led the Palestinian leadership to render Washington incompetent in brokering a peace deal between Palestine and Israel.

"Initially (after Trump's recognition of Jerusalem) they said the USA could play no role whatsoever, but they've recently clarified that the U.S. can play a role, it will just have to be in a multilateral format".
