The US state department announced its decision to close the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) office late last week, citing a 2015 law placing conditions on the US mission office. It's hoped a meeting on Monday between the US Department of State and the PLO will shed light on the Trump administration's decision to close the PLO diplomatic office in Washington, DC. The planned closure of The PLO office in Washington prompted shock and a threat from a senior Palestinian official to freeze ties with the US. The move has strained relations between the US and Palestine at a time when the administration claims it is attempting to reinvigorate the Palestine-Israel peace process.
