Palestinian officials have warned that they will freeze all communication with the US, following steps by the US President Donald Trump administration to close the Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO) office in Washington, DC, Al Jazeera reported.

Senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said on Saturday the PLO had been informed by the US State Department of a decision not to renew the operating permission for the organization's diplomatic office in the American capital.

The State Department's move was in response to the Palestinians' decision to join the International Criminal Court (ICC), and to submit files for investigation of several Israeli war crimes, including settlements, against Palestinians, according to Erekat.
