Hussam Zomlot reacts to US decision to close PLO office in DC

    The United States is continuing to pressure the Palestinian leadership to engage in US-led talks with Israel and Donald Trump's much-touted "deal of the century".

    The latest development is that the US government has decided to close the PLO's diplomatic office in Washington.
