US to Abbas: Don’t cut security ties with Israel

The US administration has warned Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas against suspending security coordination with Israel, Palestinian sources said on Tuesday.

The US and some European Union and Arab countries were also exerting pressure on Abbas to delay a meeting of the PLO’s parliament-in-exile, the Palestinian National Council, the sources said.

Those countries fear Abbas plans to use the PNC session to announce a number of dramatic decisions that could impact relations with Israel and aggravate tensions among the PLO and Fatah leaders.
