Palestine criticizes US for removing its name from list of countries

Palestine slammed the United States on Sunday for deleting its name from a list of countries.

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a spokesman for the Palestinian presidency, said in an official press statement that the decision represents an "unprecedented deterioration of American foreign policy." Rudeineh said it shows that the US government is not only biased in favor of the Israeli occupation, but is fully aligned with the plans of the extremist Israeli right-wing.

Earlier in the day, Israel Radio reported that the US State Department had deleted any reference to the Palestinian territories or the Palestinian Authority on its official website.
