The US ambassador to the UN responded to a previous comment from the top Palestinian negotiator suggesting that she “shut up,” cautioning the Palestinians that the US will not “chase after them.”

Following a speech by Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas at the UN Security Council (UNSC) on Tuesday, US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Hale, delivered a blunt message before the international body.

At the outset of her address, Haley explicitly referred to comments from Palestinian brass earlier in the month, stating, “I will decline the advice I was recently given by your top negotiator Saeb Erekat. I will not shut up. Rather, I will respectfully speak some hard truths.”
