“The United States stresses that any Palestinian government must unambiguously and explicitly commit to nonviolence, recognition of the state of Israel, acceptance of previous agreements and obligations between the parties, and peaceful negotiations,” read a statement posted on Greenblatt’s official Twitter page.

Greenblatt also praised the Palestinian Authority (PA) for sending a delegation to Hamas-ruled Gaza on Monday, as part of efforts to form a Palestinian unity government with the terror group. The PA is seeking to negotiate its custodianship of the coastal territory, which would remove control from Hamas.

“The United States welcomes efforts to create the conditions for the Palestinian Authority to fully assume its responsibilities in Gaza,” stated Greenblatt.
