The Palestinian Authority said it will not attend.

Greenblatt, President Donald Trump's special envoy for global negotiations, also lashed out at the United Nations agency that helps 5.3 million Palestinian refugees, calling it a failure. The workshop is being hosted by the Bahrain government jointly with the United States.

'We are following with great concern the American announcement about holding an economic workshop next June in the Bahraini capital of Manama, ' Hamas said, describing it as the first American confab in support of the so-called deal of the century. Resolution of the conflict between Israel and Palestine can not be imposed from the outside, Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya stated on Wednesday.

"The Palestinian people, along with all people in the Middle East, deserve a future with dignity and the opportunity to better their lives", Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, said in a statement.

Shtayyeh noted that negotiations with the USA were useless in the wake of the country's relocation of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds, which Palestinians consider the capital city of their future state.

A Chinese envoy on Wednesday asked for the adherence to the two-state solution in addressing the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. "There is no need to invent anything new".

"Our focus is really on the bottom up, which is how do you make the lives of the Palestinian people better?"

Greenblatt, who along with Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner is drafting the peace proposals, said it was time to "start a conversation about planning the transition of UNRWA services to host governments, or to other global or local non-governmental organizations, as appropriate".

As for the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees, Greenblatt called it "a band-aid" that is "running on fumes".

The UN Security Council discussed the operations of the UN Relief and Works Agency on Wednesday. "We remain ready to begin that conversation now".

Israel's U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon backed the USA effort to get rid of UNRWA, accusing the agency of "empowering the refugee problem instead of trying to solve it", and of inciting violence against Israel instead of rehabilitating Gaza.

It is of utmost importance to refrain from actions that might worsen the situation or measures that might jeopardize trust so as to create the necessary conditions for resuming dialogue, he said.
