He reaffirmed the legitimate rights of his people to have an independent country with its capital in East Jerusalem, an area controlled by Israel for more than five decades.

Abbas also called for a just solution to the Palestinian refugee issue based on United Nations Security Council resolutions.

He stressed the importance of restoring the foundations for a new peace process, although a few days ago US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan stated that this issue was not on Biden’s agenda.

Abbas recalled the president’s promises to reopen the US consulate in Jerusalem, closed by his predecessor, Donald Trump, and to remove the Palestine Liberation Organization from a list of terrorist groups drawn up by the State Department.

Washington must collaborate to end the Israeli occupation of our land and its acts of racial discrimination, he said.

In this regard, the president denounced the recent assassination by Israeli soldiers of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, and demanded justice.
