Abu Laila: The deal of the Century died before it was born
December 22, 2017

Deputy Secretary-General of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Qais Abdul Karim Abu Laila, said that the so-called "deal of the century", which is being talked about died before it was born, especially after the recent US president's decision to consider Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"It is not known if there is a deal because talking about this deal was going on over the past year and for the whole period we hear voices that have no basis," Abu Laila said.

He continued: "This means that any settlement or deal will not meet the minimum Palestinian interests and international resolutions after excluding the issue of Jerusalem from the equation."

Qais Abdul Karim added: "Now came this American step in order to cut off the talk, and even if Washington proposes any plan for the settlement of the conflict, this plan will has a clear title ,which is Jerusalem is the capital of the state of Israel ,which means that there will not be an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and that this deal will not meet even the minimum interests and international resolutions that relate to the Palestinian issue and therefore cannot make a road at all.

The deputy secretary-general of the DFLP stressed that those who continue to talk about this deal, and that it will contribute in resolving the conflict are betting on illusions.

He also added: "These illusions are being deliberately promoted to justify certain policies in harmony with the United States and open the way to normalization with Israel."

A Palestinian delegation has arrived in Moscow headed by Nabil Shaath, the Palestinian president's advisor. It also includes the Executive Committee member Saleh Raafat and Deputy Secretary-General of the DFLP, Qais Abdul Karim Abu Laila, who will meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, and there will be a meeting for the Palestinian- Russian joint Committee.
