Palestinian President Will Meet Task Force Despite Statehood Stand

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad is still scheduled to address the American Task Force on Palestine even though the PLO has cut off the group for not backing its statehood push.

The task force, a Washington-based group that advocates for a two-state solution, e-mailed invitees Monday to its Wednesday gala reminding them that Fayyad was speaking.

Politico reported last week that the Palestine Liberation Organization office in Washington – effectively the Palestinian Authority’s diplomatic mission – had written the group to cut off ties because it would not back its statehood recognition push.

The group opposed the push instead advocating for a U.S.-brokered compromise with Israel to return to peace talks.
