Saudi Arabia offers Abbas $10bn to accept US peace plan

May 02,2019

The $10m would be paid, if accepted, within 10 years.

Saudi Arabia offered Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas $10 billion to accept the US’ so called ‘deal of the century,’ MEMO reported on Thursday.

Discussing details of a meeting between Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and Abbas, the newspaper Al-Akhbar said that “Salman briefed Abbas about the details of the deal of the century and asked him to accept it.”

Bin Salman offered Abbas $10 billion over a period of ten years if he accepts the US peace plan and has the Palestinian government’s base in Abu Dis instead of occupied Jerusalem.

Abbas, however, rejected the offer and said it would “mean the end of my political life,” the report added.

Officials in Ramallah have refused to comment on the revealation.
