RAMALLAH, (PIC)– MP Dr. Mustafa Al-Barghouthi, the secretary general of the national initiative party, said that the USA’s retreat from its demand on Israel to freeze building in West Bank settlements was an announcement of the death of the peace process.

He said in a press release on Wednesday that Washington’s announcement is a “serious” step and recognition of its failure to pressure Israel, the failure of the negotiations process, and an end to the Oslo course.

Barghouthi called for an immediate Palestinian response based on a national strategy that would declare the independent state on all Palestinian lands occupied in 1967 with Jerusalem as its capital and asking the Arab countries and the world at large to recognize it similar to Brazil and Argentina.

He also advocated popular resistance, a national conference to restore national unity and to agree on a unified strategy, and finally activating international boycott of Israel and calling for imposing sanctions on it.

The lawmaker said that it was not acceptable to return to proximity talks after failure of direct talks.
