Abbas bans any Palestinian from meeting Americans

Headline: “The [PA] president: We will not agree to any options that do not include Jerusalem”

“[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas… welcomed a delegation of the leading Egyptian journalists and intellectuals yesterday evening [Jan. 4, 2019] at his residence in the capital of Egypt, Cairo… and said that ‘The doors are completely locked before the US unless it takes back the punitive steps that it has taken against us. Therefore, it is forbidden for any Palestinian, regardless of his title, to meet with them. We are also a state under occupation, and we have 83 security protocols with 83 states, prime among them the US, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, and Italy, and we are against terrorism; we are fighting it, and we are prepared to cooperate with everyone against terror.’”
