"As you know, we've been trying with our Arab brothers since 2007 to reach reconciliation and solve the Gaza issue", he said, adding that Hamas took over Gaza Strip.

The new government consists of 24 ministers from the Palestine Liberation Organization, or PLO, Abbas' Fatah Party, the Palestinian People's Party, the FIDA party and the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front, in addition to independent figures.

"The test is put through the work of ministers on the ground and not certificates".

"The Palestinian cause is passing through hard circumstances, but Palestinians and their leadership are responsible", he noted.

Abbas spoke during the first meeting on Saturday evening, at the presidential headquarters in Ramallah City, in the central occupied West Bank, with the newly formed 18th government, saying, "We have many hard and complicated tasks, first of which is the 'Deal of the Century, ' of which I think nothing is left undeclared".

Abbas also conveyed Palestinians' dismissal of the peace proposal since it excludes Jerusalem, saying "therefore, we don't want to hear the rest of the plan".

"The United Nations remains fully committed to working with the Palestinian leadership and people in ending the occupation and advancing their legitimate national aspirations for statehood based on UN resolutions", said Mladenov said.
