Iran has called Us President Donal Trump’s Middle East peace treaty ‘Deal of the Century’ as the “best betrayal of the century”. The country remarks that the peace treaty that was imposed on Palestine by the US is bound to fail.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi made the remarks in a response to the release of the peace treaty plan on Tuesday.

Trump announced the plans with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House on Tuesday. However, no Palestinian leaders were not present at the announcement of the peace plan. Instead, the ambassadors from UAE, Bahrain, and Oman were present at Trump’s press conference on Tuesday.

Palestine has previously rejected the controversial and alleged peace treaty ‘Deal of the Century’. Palestinians think the Middle East will become “increasingly destabilized” if Trump’s deal is implemented.

“By promoting the plan, Trump has essentially betrayed the Palestinian people as well as the entire Muslim Ummah,” Mousavi said calling the independent countries, including the Middle East, to counter the plan. 

Mousavi said the Palestinians were the real owners of the entire Palestinian territory, including Israel. “The illegal state of Israel was established by occupying Palestinian land. So the only way to resolve the crisis there is to hold a referendum between the Palestinian real Muslims, Jews and Christians so they can decide their own fate.”

He also noted that illegal Jewish immigrants from various parts of the world will be excluded from the referendum.

It is very sad that some Muslim countries have accepted this plan by completely ignoring Palestinian rights, he added. 

In response to the release of the peace treaty plan, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said, “I have said a thousand times that we do not accept, do not obey.” 

“We will not accept such a plan that would not allow Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of an independent Palestine,” he also said.
