The Palestinian Authority said on Monday that "adhering to and preserving Jerusalem was more important than Palestinians‘ ties with the US.
In response to the US administration‘s decision to close the PLO office in Washington, PA presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudaineh said that the closure of the office won‘t prompt the Palestinians to change any of their positions.
"Adherence to Jerusalem and preserving it and the rights of the Palestinians, including the issues of Jerusalem and the refugees, is more important than the relationship with the US," Abu Rudaineh said. "The decision to close the PLO office won‘t stop us from preserving our Islamic and Christian holy sites or change our commitment to international resolutions and the decisions of Arab and Islamic summits concerning the Palestinian cause."
