Abbas refuses to meet Kushner

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has refused to meet with US President Donald Trump’s adviser on the Middle East and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is expected to come to Israel next week, Haaretz reported, citing officials from the Palestinian Authority.

Commenting on the US official’s visit, Abbas’ spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh said that any negotiations regarding the so called “deal of the century” proposed by Washington will make no sense until it includes the issues of Jerusalem and Palestinian refugees.

Rudeineh stressed that any breakthrough in diplomatic ties won’t possible if the US doesn’t give up its strategy of “changing the rules of the game.”
