Shut PLO office

IN finally recognising the refusal of the PLO leadership to start direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel, the American government — reflecting congressional concerns — has ordered the closure of the PLO office in Washington.

Meanwhile, America has emphasised that direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians are the only way forward and will continue its efforts to achieve a lasting and comprehensive peace.

The PLO mission to the UK, represented by Manuel Hassassian, similarly supports no effort towards such peace talks.

The British government should now consider closing the PLO London office.
