Dweik: The stated failure of the PA-Israeli peace talks was predictable

AMMAN, (PIC)– Speaker of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC) Dr. Aziz Dweik said that the declared failure of the peace negotiations between the Israeli occupation state and the Palestinian Authority (PA) was a foregone conclusion.

This came in response to the remarks made by a PA official that the American administration told de facto president Mahmoud Abbas about its failure to convince the Israeli government to freeze settlement activities in order to resume the peace talks.

The speaker told the Jordanian newspaper Assabeel published on Friday that since the first day of the peace talks, the Israeli occupation state has been stalling, getting around and rebuffing all Arab initiatives that were made to activate the peace process.

He added that the Israeli occupation wanted from its peace talks with the Palestinians to gain time to impose more fait accompli on the ground especially in the occupied city of Jerusalem.

The PLC head also slammed the Israeli occupation authority for kidnapping Palestinian lawmakers, saying these Israeli practices are aimed at thwarting the parliamentary life and retaining a state of a constitutional vacuum in the West Bank.

“The derailing of the Palestinian people’s political experience is aimed at installing the occupation and its foundations in the West Bank, and eliminating any voice opposing its existence there,” the lawmaker stressed.
