Top Palestinian negotiator: New US Embassy an illegal ‘settlement outpost’

The chief Palestinian negotiator is accusing the Trump administration of “burying” Mideast peace hopes by moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

Saeb Erekat called the new embassy an illegal “settlement outpost.”

“We also witnessed today a ceremony of the prime minister of Israel and the administration of President Trump burying the peace process, burying the two-state solution, killing the hope in the minds of the people of the Middle East as a whole with the possibility of peace,” Erekat says.
