Newly appointed Palestinian prime minister Mohammad Shtayyeh speaks at his office in the West Bank city of Ramallah on March 10, 2019.

New Palestinian government sworn in with Abbas loyalist at its helm.

Meanwhile, Abbas said he does not think it is useful to talk with the United States President Donald Trump about any solution or issue, after he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moved the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

According to the presidential decree, Ishtaye will serve as the minister of interior and minister of Waqf, or religious affairs, until two new ministers are named.

He also criticized the new Palestinian government as "a separatist government that doesn't include all factions and political powers".

Ibrahim Melhem, spokesman for the new government and a member of Fatah, told Palestine TV that the mission of the new Palestinian government is to defend Palestinian holy sites and lands despite Israel's threats to annex the West Bank.

During a meeting, the Palestinian president stressed "the Palestinian cause is passing through hard circumstances, but the Palestinian people and their leadership are on a level of responsibility".

RAMALLAH, Palestinian Territory - The Palestinian Authority government has been sworn in a second time in as many days after the prime minister and his Cabinet failed to recite part of the oath.

He said the Palestinians have rejected this deal from the beginning, "because it excluded Jerusalem from Palestine, and therefore we do not want the rest".
