Mohammad Shtayyeh says US waging ‘financial war’ on Palestinians in bid to force their surrender without independent state; insists: ‘There are no partners in Palestine for Trump’.
The new Palestinian Authority prime minister on Tuesday accused the United States of declaring “financial war” on his people and said an American peace plan purported to be in the works will be “born dead.”
In his first interview with the international media since taking office over the weekend, Mohammad Shtayyeh laid out plans to get through the financial crisis he has inherited and predicted that the international community, including US allies in the Arab world, would join the Palestinians in rejecting President Donald Trump’s expected peace plan.
