Palestinian protesters egg U.S. politicians visiting Ramallah

Qatar's ambassador to Gaza Mohammed al Emadi speaks during a press conference with UN Special Coordinator for the United Nations for the peace process in the Middle East in Gaza City

"Fatah does suffer, however", he said, "from the ongoing failure of the [Israel-Palestine] peace process, which I believe will soon end Abbas' political life".

Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and the top administration official in charge of restarting the peace talks, and Jason Greenblatt, the top U.S. Middle East negotiator, were seated directly behind Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, for the Abbas address.

She said the US will not change its decision on December 6 to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem, a move that has frozen U.S.

Abbas spoke as the Trump administration's two key Mideast negotiators who are working on a US peace proposal - the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner and special representative Jason Greenblatt - sat in the Security Council chamber listening.

"Al-Saradeeh was severely beaten by Israeli forces during his arrest at dawn today", the statement read.

"You can choose to denounce the U.S., reject the USA role in peace talks and pursue punitive measures against Israel in worldwide forums like the UN", Haley said.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres stressed that "there is no Plan B" to a two-state solution. There has neen little detail on the plan so far. "We will present it when it is done and the time is right", the statement said. The Palestinians view East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has left the hospital after routine checks in the United States and is fine, a senior Palestinian official told Reuters on Thursday. "Yet, this administration has not clarified its position". "It has transformed the occupation from a temporary situation as per worldwide law into a situation of permanent settlement colonisation and imposed a one-state reality of apartheid". Israel considers the entire city, including the eastern sector, to be its undivided capital.

Palestinians see the eastern part of the city as the capital of their future state and the USA move broke with decades of worldwide consensus that Jerusalem's status should be negotiated between the two parties.

Jerusalem is considered a sacred place, which is home to Jewish, Christian and Muslim holy sites.

Urging nations to recognise Palestine as an independent state as per the two-state solution, Abbas criticised Israel was "acting as a state above the law", citing its illegal settlements and continued military presence in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, the Anadolu news agency reported.

French UN Ambassador Francois Delattre said Paris was open to studying Abbas' suggestions.
