Closure of PLO Diplomatic Mission is an Aggression against Peace Our People and their leadership will not Succumb to Blackmail

Closing down PLO diplomatic mission is a new American aggression against peace in the Middle East , a flagrant attack on international law and International Criminal Court (ICC), which our people turn to it to protect themselves from crimes of Israel`s occupation.

"This decision comes under American escalating steps against our Palestinian people, who will never retreat from full adherence to their rights, foremost of which their rights to return and establish their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital." The National Council confirmed in a press statement issued by its chairman Saleem AL-Za`anoun .

The National Council stresses our people`s right to defend themselves and move ahead with referring the files of the Israeli occupation crimes to the (ICC) . This step was taken by Trump administration as a vain pretext to close PLO Office in Washington, stressing that those who seek peace and stability ought not to defend criminals, occupiers or provide them with support and cover to commit more crimes , but help to achieve human justice by punishing the occupying state , its leaders ,and settlers' gangs ,who commit crimes against children, women ,old people and Palestinian youth .

The Council stresses that our people and their leadership will never be subject to blackmail ,threats and intimidation by the American administration ,that doesn`t abide by international law ,will not succeed in confiscating our rights ,regardless of its hostile decisions from transferring its embassy to the occupied city of Jerusalem and later, its attempts to liquidate the Palestinian refugees' right to return to their homes , criminalize and distort the Palestinian people struggle, stigmatizing it as terrorism ,ending with series of punitive decisions of financial and economic nature .


The PNC represents the supreme authority of the Palestinian people in all their places of residence. It sets PLO policies and plans to achieve the goals of the Palestinian people for self-determination, the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and the return of refugees to their homes.After Al-Nakba (catastrophe) of 1948, the Arab Higher Committee for Palestine, headed by Haj Amin Al-Husseini, decided to call for the convening of a Palestine National Council which met in Gaza in 1October 1948, which was the first Palestinian legislative authority to be established in the Arab state of Palestine. The Council then formed an all-Palestine government headed by Hilmi Abdel Baqi, who represented Palestine in the league of Arab States.The first national conference was held inJerusalem on 28May -2June 1964. This first National Council had 422 members, declared the establishment of the PlO, which represents the leadership of the Palestinian Arab people. The most important of which is the Palestinian National Charter, the Statutes of the Organization and others, and Mr. Ahmad Al-Shukairy was elected Chairman of the PlO.
