US envoy remarks aiming to deceive: PLO

Tehran, The US has had no talks with the Palestinian National Authority regarding the US' peace plan and the recent remarks made by the US envoy to the Middle East Jason Greenblatt only aims to mislead, said the secretary of the executive committee of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

'With recognizing the Holy Quds as the capital of Israel and moving its embassy to the city and cutting aids to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), the US has implemented 70 of the Deal of the Century,' Saeb Erekat told Arabic Sky News, according to the Sunday report.

'PLO has not participated in the details of the US peace plan � not now, not last year,' said Erekat.

The Palestinian National Authority says that it has stopped its contacts with the US government since December 2017, when the US decided to recognize the holy Quds as the capital of the Zionist regime and move its embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

In the new US peace plan, named the Deal of the Century, several of the Palestinians' rights have been ignored and it has been said that some Arab states have agreed with the plan.

The Plan accepts the Holy Quds as the capital of the Zionist regime and introduces another city kilometers away from the Holy Quds as the capital of Palestine.
