Ramallah - The Palestinian Foreign Minister says the Palestinian envoy to Washington is being temporarily called back for consultations over the future of relations with the United States.


The move comes after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, setting off unrest and prompting the Palestinians to reject Washington as a Mideast peace broker, a role it has held for decades.

Foreign Minister Riad Malki says Sunday that discussions would take place “to set the decisions needed by the Palestinian leadership in the coming period regarding our relations with the US.” He says the envoy is expected to return to “his normal work” after the discussions.

Trump’s decision upended decades of U.S. foreign policy and countered an international consensus that the fate of Jerusalem should be determined in negotiations.

Who really cares? This fool is just relaxing here collecting a salary for doing and accomplishing absolutely nothing. In fact, envoys who are seeking peace in the Middle east have very easy jobs. There's nothing to do. PacMan, solitaire, and sudoku are time fillers, and are probably a better task plan. The Palis do not want peace at all. Unless Israel would concede itself out of existence, they will never be satisfied. They have never abandoned terror, and until they do, no one should bother conversing with them, even about the weather. Let him go home, and leave him there.
