RAMALLAH — The Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas has sent a letter to the US president-elect, Donald Trump, saying that if the US embassy is moved to Jerusalem, the Middle East, and even peace in the world, "will be in severe trouble".

"We heard a lot of statements relating to moving the US embassy, which we hope are not correct and will not be implemented, but if implemented then the peace process in the Middle East, and even peace in the world, will be in a crisis we will not be able to come out from," Abbas wrote to Trump.

Abbas also invited Trump to Bethlehem, saying "we invite you to visit Palestine, especially Bethlehem, next year, and that this statement is not on your agenda because any statement or position that will disrupt or alter the status of Jerusalem is a red line that we will not accept it."
