Erekat on Israeli settlements vote

(7 Feb 2017) A senior Palestinian official on Tuesday urged US President Donald Trump to tell Israel to stop a newly-passed law legalising thousands of West Bank settlement homes built on private Palestinian land. Speaking to the Associated Press in Paris, Saeb Erekat, Secretary General of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said that the Israeli law would "destroy the Palestinian Authority" and harm the efforts toward a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The PLO Secretary General also told AP it violated the Fourth Geneva Convention and the Oslo Accord and he called for a judicial inquiry by the International Criminal Court. The controversial law, approved by Israeli lawmakers late on Monday, is the latest in a series of pro-settler steps taken by Israel's government since the election of Trump as US President. Erekat spoke in Paris ahead of a visit by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to meet with President Francois Hollande on Tuesday.
