Abbas warns Trump that embassy move will have "destructive consequences for the peace process"

Headline: “The [PA] president called on Trump not to transfer the US embassy to Jerusalem and sent letters to world countries in order that they intervene to prevent this step”
“[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas sent a letter to US President-elect Donald Trump in which he explained the dangers of transferring the American embassy to Jerusalem. He called on the US president-elect not to carry out this step, due to its destructive consequences for the peace process, the option of two states, and the security and stability of the region in light of the fact that the decision of the occupation authority (Israel) [parentheses in source] to annex East Jerusalem is invalid, nullified, and contradicts international law.
The president also sent letters to the presidents of Russia, China, and France, to the German chancellor, to the British prime minister, to the European Union, to the African Union, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the presidency of the Non-Aligned Movement, and the Secretary-General of the Arab League, in which he called on them to act and to invest every possible effort to prevent the step of transferring the American embassy to Jerusalem.”
