On Tuesday 18th September, PLO's Executive Committee member, Wasel Abu Yousef, revealed that the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas addressed during the meeting of the Palestinian leadership, the possibility to cancel Oslo Accords (the Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements), and the economic and security related agreements.
Abu Yousef told Asharq Alawsat London-based newspaper that consensus within the Palestinian leadership on this issue have been different. Upon that, the issue has been postponed to the next meeting when President Abbas returns from the United Nations headquarters in New York.
The same newspaper also revealed that this is the first time the Palestinian leadership addresses the issue of Oslo Agreement since it was signed in 1993.
The Palestinian leader, Yasser Abed Rabbo, said that cancelling the Oslo Agreement is on the negotiation table in light of, as he described, "the Israeli denial of the peace process."
Abed Rabbo told London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper that the issue is not just cancelling the agreement but also a new policy that may bring a better political alternative to solve the Palestinian case.
He said that what is requested now is not the collapse of the Palestinian Authority or its institutions, but reinforcing the role of the PA's institutions to control the land and not only its residents.
