Palestinians Reject Possible US Aid Deduction
Pyongyang, April 22 (KCNA) -- Hanan Ashrawi, a member of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee, when interviewed by a broadcasting service on Apr. 18, strongly censured the U.S. threat.

He accused the U.S. of talking about any possible reduction of aid if the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) sought an international recognition of independence.

It clearly showed that the U.S. is supporting the extremist stand of Israel, he added.

He stressed that Israel must withdraw from all Palestinian lands it has occupied in 1967, including the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
