Bahrain Mirror: Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh said that the Palestinians had not been consulted about a US-sponsored conference in Bahrain to be held next month, aimed at encouraging international investment in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The White House has announced that the announcement of the first part of the "Deal of the Century" will be during an economic workshop to attract investment to the West Bank, Gaza and the region, and will be held in the Bahraini capital Manama.

"The Cabinet confirms that it wasn't consulted about this said workshop in terms of inputs, outputs or timing," Shtayyeh told Palestinian ministers in the presence of journalists.

"The Council of Ministers affirms that any solution to the conflict is a political solution linked to ending the occupation by realizing the national rights of the Palestinian people to establish their independent, sovereign and viable state on the 1967 borders with Al-Quds as its capital and the right of return for refugees based on the resolutions of international legality and international law."

In a joint statement by the United States and Bahrain, they said that Manama would host an economic workshop entitled "Peace for Prosperity" in Manama on 25 and 26 June 2019.
