RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Friday the Palestinians reject and condemn Sudan’s move to normalise ties with Israel under a U.S.-brokered agreement.

“No one has the right to speak in the name of the Palestinian people and in the name of the Palestinian cause,” said a statement published by Abbas’s office.
