Palestinians say they won't meet with Pence

"The decision trump is contrary to global resolutions, and undermines efforts to achieve peace in the region, and is also a statement about the failure of the USA sponsorship of the peace process", Abbas said.

Rajoub also signalled that Abbas would not meet with Pence during his planned visit later this month.

A senior Palestinian official says the Palestinians will not meet with Vice President Mike Pence during his upcoming visit to the region because of the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Protests have kicked off throughout Israel, specifically in the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem.

He would be the first senior USA official to do so since former President George W. Bush in 2008. It is not clear what Rajoub's comments mean for Pence's visit to the Palestinian territories.

The Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future independent Palestinian state, while Israel wants all Jerusalem to be the eternal capital of the state of Israel. Trump has vowed to broker an agreement between the two sides, which he has called the "ultimate deal".

"Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel's capital", Trump said Wednesday.

Shortly before, Egypt had condemned the USA decision.

Gaza: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned and rejected on Wednesday the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital, saying the move "violates all worldwide and bilateral resolutions".
