Abed Rabbo says Israel Wants to Abort Negotiations

AMALLAH, August 7, 2013 (WAFA) – Israel wants to abort the negotiations that started only one week ago with its settlement activities, Yasser Abed Rabbo, secretary of Palestine Liberation Organization, said on Voice of Palestine on Wednesday.

He expressed concern that the Israeli government was using the negotiations as a cover for its settlement activities following a decision to build a new settlement in East Jerusalem.

“The situation now is more critical than at any previous time,” he said. “Israel is using the negotiations even before they start as a cover for its settlement activities.”

Abed Rabbo warned that the Israeli government is doing everything it can to abort the talks that started last week in Washington.

“It will be impossible to have a political process while there are extensive efforts to create facts on the ground that will prejudge the outcome of the negotiations,” he said.

“We cannot be victims of this big deception called negotiations with this ongoing mad settlement activity,” he said.
