Palestinians Plan Return to UN, ICC Regardless of Result of Trump Effort

Senior Palestinian officials have told The Media Line that regardless of the outcome of this week’s Trump administration effort to jumpstart peace talks with Israel, the Palestinian Authority will nevertheless resume its campaign for recognition by international agencies and institutions and pursue claims against Israel at the International Criminal Court at The Hague. The administration’s delegation, headed by First Son-in-Law Jared Kushner and including negotiations envoy Jason Greenblatt and deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell, will meet with Israeli leaders before traveling to Ramallah on August 24. The team will also meet with officials in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan. An official involved in the PA’s relationship with UN human rights agencies told The Media Line that, “Palestine is an observer member and has the full right to head to the UN, which is the international law association and that should happen permanently.”
