Headline: "Abu Rudeina: Jerusalem is not for sale - not for gold and not for silver"
[PA] Palestinian Presidential Office official Spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina said that Jerusalem and its holy sites are not for sale - not for gold and not for silver.
He said this in response to the statements by the US [made by US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley on Jan. 2, 2018] which stated that it will make a decision to stop the funding of UNRWA
(UN Relief and Works Agency) if Palestine does not return to negotiations with Israel.
Abu Rudeina said that the true peace and negotiations are based on the Arab and international legitimacy on the way to establishing an independent Palestinian state whose capital is East Jerusalem.
The official spokesman of the presidential office emphasized that if the US cares about its interests in the Middle East it must adhere to the principles and sources of authority of the UN Security Council and General Assembly; otherwise it will push the region to the brink of an abyss
