Arab Ambassadors to the United Kingdom have demanded that the British government rejects Trump’s proposal for a solution to the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict termed the “Deal of the Century” as it does not satisfy the rights required by the Palestinians as well as constituting a violation of United Nations resolutions as well as international law.
This was expressed in a letter by the Arab Ambassadors to the British Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab before the Security Council meeting tomorrow in the presence of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who will deliver a speech regarding the Palestinian perspective on the Trump proposal.
The Ambassadors demand that the British government clearly reject the proposal in the Security Council meeting to be held tomorrow, highlighting Britain’s historical responsibility in ensuring that there must be a just and comprehensive peace which is in accordance with international law, as well as working to commit implementing the law and its protection from continued Israeli violations and abuses. The letter also urged the British government to publicly support a two-state solution on the basis of an international agreement and the rejection of unilateral steps.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, H.E. Dr. Husam Zomlot reinforced that the letter came after an emergency meeting of Arab Ambassadors to discuss the British position on the proposal and the mechanisms required for promoting joint Arab action in Britain. He also stated that the British official position is inconsistent as on one hand, the British government welcomed Trump’s efforts whilst also announcing that it does not adopt the proposal while reaffirming its adherence to the two-state solution. Dr. Zomlot stressed the necessity for continuing efforts at an official level to urge the British government to take a clear and concrete position, more explicitly the rejection of the Trump proposal, recognition of the State of Palestine and to apply the law by banning the illegal settlement products from entering U.K. markets and preventing British companies from operating in settlements.
Ambassador Husam Zomlot, head of the Palestinian Mission to the UK, has asked for urgent clarification from the Scottish National Party and Scottish Government after an amendment last week to a Scottish parliamentary motion described the Palestinian Nakba as “self-inflicted.”The
