The changes were announced in a virtual speech before the U.N. Security Council by Richard Mills, acting US ambassador to the United Nations. He also said that Biden has promised to re-open the PLO's mission as well as restore aid to UNRWA.
"US assistance benefits millions of ordinary Palestinians and helps to preserve a stable environment that benefits both Palestinians and Israelis", Mills said. Mills said that the United States will continue "to urge other countries" to follow suit in normalising relations with Israel.
At last year's annual meeting of the UN General Assembly, Abbas - who had rejected a peace plan advanced by then USA president Donald Trump - said the Israeli-Palestinian conflict needed to be resolved on the basis of global law, and under conditions agreed by the worldwide community. The PLO mission was closed in October 2018.
Mills stressed that "the USA will maintain its steadfast support for Israel" - opposing one-sided resolutions and other actions in global bodies that unfairly single out Israel and promoting Israel's standing and participation at the United Nations and other worldwide organizations. Palestinians had seen that as a betrayal of Arab pledges to make peace with Israel only after the Palestinians made peace.
Zomlot last week hailed the end of Trump's presidency and celebrated "standing tall against the bully".
Netanyahu's government responded by slamming the Obama administration, under which Biden served as vice president.
Mill's statements echo those made by other Biden administration officials and congressional Democrats. He added that Biden would want to promote further normalization agreements in a way that would bolster the push for a two-state solution. Israel has built a far-flung network of settlements that house almost 700,000 Jewish settlers in the West Bank and Jerusalem since their capture in 1967.
On Tuesday, almost all who spoke at the Security Council meeting reaffirmed the need for a two-state solution, under which Israel and a future Palestine would coexist.
The Biden administration welcomes the recent normalization of relations between Israel and a number of Arab nations and will urge other countries to establish ties, Mills said.
The anti-settlement monitoring group Peace Now said the majority of the new government tenders are deep inside the occupied West Bank.
The United States has so far not reacted to the settlement authorizations, though the United Kingdom and European Union expressed "concern" and called on Israel to halt all illegal settlement activity in the occupied territory.
Before Mills spoke, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki sharply criticized the Trump administration for using "the United States' might and influence to support Israel's unlawful efforts to entrench its occupation and control" and reiterated Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' hopes "for the resumption of relations and positive engagement".
"Trump left the White House".
Israel's new ambassador to Washington, Gilad Erdan, is also Israel's envoy to the United Nations. President Biden's policies, laid out for the first time today, will shift the USA back to the more traditional positions held by previous Democratic and Republican administrations.
