RAMALLAH, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Saeb Erekat slammed Washington's call for a conference over Middle East peace in the Polish capital Warsaw.

Erekat told Voice of Palestine, the official Palestinian radio station, that the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's initiative proposed to the UN Security Council last February are still on the table, urging the international community to adopt them since they are based on the two-state solution on the borders of 1967 and international legitimacy resolutions.

Erekat highlighted that the Palestinians reject any peace proposal that undermines their right to establish their state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital. He described Israel as the "source of evil."

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday that Washington will jointly host a global summit in Warsaw on Feb. 13-14 focusing on Iran and its role in the Middle East region.
