Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has described US President Donald Trump's Middle East peace efforts as the "slap of the century".

At a meeting of Palestinian leaders, he stressed he would not accept any peace plan from the US after it recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

He also accused Israel itself of putting an end to the Oslo Accords, which began the peace process in 1995.

Trump has threatened to cut aid if the Palestinians reject peace talks.

Speaking earlier this month,Trump insisted recognition of Jerusalem took the hugely divisive issue "off the table" for new peace talks.

Palestinians argue the move shows the US cannot be a neutral broker.
