PA Condemns Australia Over Stance on Eastern Jerusalem


The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Saturday threatened to ask Arab and Muslim-majority countries to re-evaluate relations with Australia in protest of Canberra’s dropping the term "occupied" when referring to eastern Jerusalem.

According to the Ma’an news agency, in a letter to Julie Bishop, Australia's foreign minister, the PLO's chief negotiator blasted that decision and said the PA would respond by asking two regional Arab and Muslim state blocs to review their ties with Australia.
