Jerusalem is eternal Palestinian capital, Abbas

Wed, Dec. 6, 2017
RAMALLAH, West Bank - 6 December 2017: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Wednesday that Jerusalem was the "eternal capital of the State of Palestine" in response to U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement that he was recognizing the city as Israel's capital.

In a pre-recorded speech played on Palestine TV, Abbas rejected Trump's announcement which included a decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, a move he said was "tantamount to the United States abdicating its role as a peace mediator."
