PA Minister of Jerusalem Affairs: US embassy move "could potentially bring the situation [back to] the starting point"

Headline: "Al-Husseini: The transfer of the American embassy to Jerusalem means the end of the agreement on principles and the return of matters to the starting point"
"[PA] Minister of Jerusalem Affairs Adnan Al-Husseini said: ‘New American President [Donald] Trump's insistence on transferring the American embassy to Jerusalem is a large change of the rules of the game and a crossing of all the former lines according to which they [the US] behaved. This step will bring complications and responses that could potentially bring the situation [back to] the starting point.' …
Al-Husseini added: 'Transferring the embassy means recognition of the legality of the occupation and of the legality of Israel’s annexation of the city [Jerusalem], and this constitutes a revolution against the agreements that have been signed, and is liable to allow other states to transfer their embassies in the shadow of the international and Hebrew silence, negligence, and weakness towards the occupation.’"
