Erekat: US wants to turn Palestine cause into humanitarian issue rather than political

Saeb Erekat, secretary general of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said on Tuesday that the United States is trying to turn the Palestinian cause from a political issue into a humanitarian one.

Speaking to Voice of Palestine radio, Erekat said that Washington has called in an article to get rid of the Palestinian leadership because of its adherence to national principles and to Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state, noting that the US administration wants a new leadership that will go along with the new facts it seeks.

He said that the United States has gotten itself into a very dangerous game by trying to replace national rights with humanitarian projects, urging the Palestinians to reconcile their differences and work together by implementing the reconciliation agreements and find a common ground for a full political partnership based on the PLO program.
