The Palestinian authority has decided to suspend contacts with the United States in response to the closure of their offices in Washington, said the official representative of the Palestinian President Nabil Abu rudeina.

The state Department last week announced the withdrawal of permission to work in the United States of mission of the Palestine liberation Organization (PLO), representing the Palestinians in the international arena.

«The Palestinian leadership has decided to freeze relations with the United States in response to the intention to close the PLO office in Washington,» said Abu rudeina TV channel «al Jazeera».

The state Department on Saturday announced the withdrawal of permission to work in the United States of the PLO mission structure representing the Palestinians on the international stage and actually performing the functions of their Embassy in Washington. The state Department has not renewed the work permit office of the PLO after the attempts of the Palestinians to appeal to international criminal court (ICC) accusations against the Israeli authorities.

According to the adopted in 2015 by the U.S. Congress to the law, Palestine loses the right to representation in the capital of the United States if it supports the investigation of the ICC against Israel for crimes against Palestinians.
