RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — PLO Executive Committee member Taysir Khaled said Sunday that all agreements signed with Israel would be reviewed.
Khaled said in a statement that the PLO would convene to discuss the “next phase” following President Mahmoud Abbas’ submission of a bid to join the United Nations in New York.
Dissolving the Palestinian Authority is “an option,” he said, adding that it was “too early” to discuss specific plans.
President Mahmoud Abbas told world leaders on Friday that Israel’s continued illegal settlement building threatened the existence of the West Bank government, during his address to the UN General Assembly in New York.
Khaled said disbanding the PA would be an “additional burden” on the PLO, but that all options were being considered.
Regardless of the outcome of the UN bid, the PLO will review all agreements signed with Israel, particularly in light of Israel’s threats to withhold Palestinian tax revenues, the PLO official added.
