Official PA TV program Topic of the Day, hosting Fatah Central Committee member Muhammad Shtayyeh

Fatah Central Committee member Muhammad Shtayyeh: “Politically speaking, you need to work with any president, Hillary [Clinton] or [Donald] Trump. This is the choice of the American people and we will act accordingly, and [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas sent him (i.e., Trump) a telegram of congratulation as President of the US…
He (i.e., Trump) shows a great amount of admiration for [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, and we understand – regardless of rumors and stories – that there was a sort of game [between them]. Putin also admires Trump. There is a relationship between them, and this could create understanding between the two world powers - Russia and the US. If there will be such an understanding, it is possible that a kind of new Yalta Conference (post-World War II conference in 1945 between the US, the UK, and Russia on reorganizing Europe –Ed.) could be held in the [Middle East] region, and this would influence the situation in Syria, Iraq, and Libya. We hope that if there would be international understandings on the issue that would positively influence Palestine.”
