Information / Baghdad ...
US President Donald Trump has threatened to cut aid to the Palestinian Authority, accusing it of refusing to negotiate a peace deal with Israel after his administration recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli entity.
"We pay the Palestinians hundreds of millions of dollars a year and we do not get any respect or respect," Trump was quoted by Sky News as saying in an interview with Trump news agency.
"They do not even want to negotiate a peace treaty with Israel ... as long as the Palestinians no longer want to negotiate peace, why should we pay them any of these huge future payments?"
Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli entity has sparked a wave of Arab and international outrage and condemnation in many countries of the world. Ending / 25 z
