Palestine warned Serbia

Palestine has warned that the Palestinian Authority will sever diplomatic relations with any country that relocates or opens an embassy in Jerusalem

The Secretary-General of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), Saeb Erekat, who was the main peace negotiator with Israel, announced that on Twitter.

“We appeal to all states to respect international law, including UN Security Council resolutions 478 and 2334. Violation of international law is a sign of weakness, not strength,” he wrote.

On Friday, US President Donald Trump announced that Serbia would move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and that Kosovo and Israel had agreed to establish relations.

In another tweet in Arabic, Erekat criticized Arab and Muslim countries for not putting pressure on the Trump administration because of that and stated that Trump was persuading the African country of Malawi to move the embassy to Jerusalem as well.
