During a meeting of the PLO Executive Committee on Sunday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas agreed to restore ties with the US if four conditions are met:
If US President-elect Joe Biden allows for the PLO office to reopen in Washington, withdraw support for Israeli plans to extend its sovereignty over parts of the West Bank and Jordan Valley, and resuming two-state solution discussions.
In September, Biden said that it was important for more countries to recognize Israel as a sovereign state but said it was just as important to continue working toward a two-state solution with the Palestinians.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised on multiple occasions to extend Israel’s sovereignty over the West Bank and Jordan Valley but has since been postponed due to major advancements of peace between Israel and neighboring Arab countries.
In May, Abbas terminated all treaties with the US and Israel after Netanyahu announced plans to extend Israel’s sovereignty during a swearing-in ceremony of his new cabinet.
