The Palestine Liberation Organisation’s (PLO) Central Council, the second-highest Palestinian decision-making body, has recommended revoking recognition of Israel until the latter recognises the State of Palestine in its 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital. During a meeting in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah late on Monday, the PLO, which is an umbrella of major Palestinian political parties, said it “assigned” its Executive Committee “to suspend recognition of Israel until it recognizes the State of Palestine on the 1967 borders and revokes the decision to annex East Jerusalem and expand and build settlements,” according to Wafa, the official Palestinian news agency.

It added that it would renew its decision to “stop security coordination [with Israel] in all its forms” and called on all Arab states “to sever all ties with any state that recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and transfers its embassy to it”.
