Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, warned that, all peace deals signed with Israel would be reviewed, if the situation does not change.

Abbas issued the warning in his speech, aired on Palestine Television, at the end of a three-day meeting of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) Central Council, held in Ramallah.

"Israel had breached all the signed agreements, starting from Oslo peace accords signed with the PLO in 1993 to Paris Economic Treaty in 1994," said Abbas. The 84-year-old Palestinian President accused Israel "of keeping the construction of settlements and threatening to cut the allowances of families of Palestinians killed or jailed in Israeli prisons." He also slammed the recently approved Israeli State Nation Law as discriminatory.

Meanwhile, Abbas also reaffirmed rejection to the U.S.-proposed peace deal, known as "the Deal of the Century," to resolve the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. The Palestinian side "won't hold any talks with Washington and won't accept the United States as a peace sponsor, before it regrets its decisions in relation to Jerusalem, refugees and settlements," Abbas said.

The Palestinians have been boycotting the United States since Dec 6, 2017, when U.S. President, Donald Trump, declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, especially after May 14, the day the U.S. embassy to Israel was moved to the disputed holy city.

The Palestinians seek to establish an independent state with East Jerusalem as their capital, while Israel insists that the entire Jerusalem is its eternal capital.
