Ahmed Qurei, a former prime minister of the Palestinian Authority and peace negotiator with Israel, has declared that he supports the annulment of the Oslo Accords, Chinese news agency, Xinhua reported.
In a televised interview, Qurei said it is necessary to annul the Accords “because the previous and the current Israeli governments trampled the agreement.”
He added: “The Israeli governments had turned the agreement into a meaningless one.”

Qurei was at the heart of the negotiation process that led to the signing of the agreements by then Prime Minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin, and Palestinian President, Yasser Arafat.
Now, however, he believes circumstances have changed. “It’s the right of all parties to wonder whether the agreement is still valid or not… The two-state solution is not over yet, but currently, the Israeli position is the worst, ever since the signing of the agreement.”
