This is what they're offering now: "Abu Dis", Abbas said.

Israeli forces detained six Palestinians, including five members of the same family, during pre dawn raids on Friday in the northern occupied West Bank.

Last week, President Donald Trump said the United States may withhold future aid payments to the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) over what he called the Palestinians' unwillingness to talk peace with Israel. "On the phone? On television?"

The US ambassador to Israel David Friedman earlier this week blamed Palestinian authorities for the failure of peace efforts, after an Israeli settler was killed in occupied West Bank.

Abbas has said that the United States can no longer be a fair arbiter for negotiations, but that the Palestinians are open to talks in line with the Arab Peace Initiative, a framework endorsed by the Arab League in 2002. The pair are an "insult" to any self-respecting US administration, he said.

"I am saying that Oslo, there is no Oslo", Abbas said, referring to the agreements that led to the creation of the Palestinian Authority and envisioned a final resolution to the conflict.

That was "absolutely, manifestly, beyond any doubt the option which will do the least damage to our economy", Sturgeon said. The move follows a Brexit summit by the leaders of the four parties which Labour refused to attend .

Officials will continue their meeting on Monday.

Abbas's comments were made at the start of a two-day meeting in Ramallah of the Palestinian Central Council, the Palestinians' highest decision-making body, where 95 delegates will debate future strategy.

Abbas' rebukes were not limited to US officials.
