(VOVWORLD) - The Palestinians rejected on Sunday statements by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories.  

Official WAFA news agency quoted Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a spokesman for the Palestinian presidency saying that all types of settlements on Palestinian soil occupied by Israel in 1967 are illegal in accordance with the international legitimacy.

Earlier on Friday, Pompeo said the statements by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on annexing some Israeli settlements in the West Bank "don't harm the United States' peace plan," which is better known as the Deal of the Century. Abu Rudeineh said that Palestine rejected these statements and said that they were irresponsible.
