"Nikki Haley needs to shut up and realize that the Palestinian leadership is not the problem", the top Palestinian diplomat in interview with the Palestinian Al-Watan Voice news website.
The Executive Committee, led by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, ordered the preparation of "plans and projects for disengagement steps with the Israeli government at the political, administrative, economic and security levels".
Shaath further said Palestine would increase aid to UNRWA.
He continued: "She called for overthrowing the democratically elected Palestinian president".
She criticized Abbas for rejecting the U.S.'s role in peace talks, insulting President Donald Trump, and calling for the suspension of Israeli recognition.
Erekat insisted Palestinians are not looking for a fight with the US, as they plan to take the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel to the International Court of Justice.
Japan is preparing to recognize the state of Palestine, a senior Palestinian official claims.
"Japan supports the formation of a new worldwide framework for managing the peace process, breaking free from USA monopoly over it", Shaath stated. In 1993, as part of the Oslo Accords, the PLO recognized Israel's right to exist in peace, accepted United Nations Security Council resolutions, and "rejected" "violence and terrorism". "Therefore, we are seeking, together with global parties, to convene an worldwide conference for peace".
Last month the PLO's Central Council called on the Executive Committee to suspend recognition of Israel until it recognizes the state of Palestine and halts the building of Jewish settlements on occupied Palestinian land.
