Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Ishtaye on Monday accused the US administration of preventing Arab states from supporting the Palestinian Authority to force it to barter its national rights for money.

During the weekly meeting of the PA cabinet, Ishtaye said that " US President Donald Trump cut off aid to us and prevented some Arab states from fulfilling their obligations towards us to besiege the leadership and the Palestinian people politically, economically and financially."

"Our Palestinian people have the rights to establish their independent state on the borders of 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital," Ishtaye said.

Recently, the United States sponsored peace agreements between the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Israel, which have sparked anger of the Palestinians.
