It's not known how the Palestinian Authority responded to the Japanese peace summit proposal.
Oren also suggested the United States close the PLO mission in Washington DC in response to the vicious anti-American campaign waged by the Palestinian Authority's leading Fatah faction.
Abbas is in a fury due to the failure of the UN Security Council to pass a resolution forcing the US to rescind its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The draft resolution “affirms that any decisions and actions which purport to have altered the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect..."
The Palestinian Authority leader is already making promises about a city he has yet to enter freely.
Erdogan called on world powers to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of “Palestine” and said President Trump should reverse his decision.
"He is declaring war in the Middle East, he is declaring war against 1.5 billion Muslims; hundreds of millions of Christians . . ."
Palestinian Authority Leadership Condemns Historic US Decision to Recognize Jerusalem as Capital of Israel
"This is the most dangerous decision that any U.S. president has ever taken."
Abbas urged every world leader to intervene and do everything possible to prevent the United States from moving its embassy to Israel's capital city.
"I'm coming towards you, my enemy, We're going down from every house with cleavers and knives, With grenades we announced a popular war."
"One people, one weapon" may apply to the Palestinian Authority under Mahmoud Abbas but not yet Gaza.

Senior Palestinian Authority officials say Kushner deserves the credit for the PA-Hamas reconciliation
Hamas responded that "Greenblatt's statement and the demand for a Palestinian unity government to recognize Israel and renounce violence came under pressure from the right-wing government in Israel."
Sooner or later, this shiny package of a reconciliation is bound to fall apart, since it makes no sense.
"Ayman Odeh is a terrorist in a suit. What he has managed to conceal for two years of smiling – he revealed in one phone call with Haniyeh."
'For too long, Hamas has exploited the people of Gaza as hostages and shields, bullying them into submission.'
Both the Hamas in Gaza and the PLO in Judea and Samaria have not held parliamentary elections in more than a decade, and it remains to be seen who would win such an election – should the PA government call one.
It's not Islam. Really?
Abbas will not agree to a model similar to that of Hezbollah in Lebanon, and will demand barring external forces (i.e. Qatar) from involvement in the administration of the Gaza Strip.
A source in Ramallah noted that Abbas' internal political rivals, headed by Muhammad Dahlan, are much more likely to find themselves under an Interpol extradition order than Israeli officials.
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms today’s horrific attack in Har Adar. “We also condemn statements glorifying terrorism."
