The Palestinian Authority is breaking off all agreements with Israel over its plans to annex part of the occupied West Bank, Palestine's foreign minister said Monday, calling Israel’s move a "declaration of war on Palestinian human rights."
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
Riad al-Maliki said: "We cannot accept the US administration as the sole broker for peace between us and the Israelis."
"The US has taken sides. And they are right now completely adopting the Israeli position. And as a result, you know, they are not an honest broker anymore." he added, speaking in a video press conference with journalists from the Geneva UN correspondents' association ACANU.
Israel is expected to annex parts of the West Bank on July 1, as agreed between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Benny Gantz, the head of the Blue and White party.
The plan has drawn international condemnation and outrage.
