January 03, 2018

Palestine says it will not be blackmailed by US President Donald Trump's threats to cut funding more than 300 million dollar a year.

The Palestinians will not be "blackmailed" by US President Donald Trump, a senior official said Wednesday, after he threatened to cut aid to them worth more than $300 million a year.

"We will not be blackmailed," senior Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi said in a statement.

"President Trump has sabotaged our search for peace, freedom and justice. Now he dares to blame the Palestinians for the consequences of his own irresponsible actions."APP
