US Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah on Sunday, ahead of a diplomatic summit with the foreign ministers of Israel, the UAE, Bahrain, Morocco, and Egypt in the southern Negev Desert. In a statement Sunday evening on the Negev Summit, the PA avoided condemning the Arab participants, while warning them that Israel was using the meeting to avoid dealing with the Palestinian issue.

“This Israeli mobilization aims to cover up its actions of settlement and annexation, and prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state,” the PA Foreign Ministry said. It called the summit a “harsh attack against the Palestinian people.” The PA’s Foreign Ministry also slammed the Israeli government as “the government of settlers and neo-fascists, the government of murder and racial discrimination.”
