Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will attend the United Nations Security Council's meeting on the situation in the Middle East on February 20, the body's monthly president said Thursday.
Just last week, Trump threatened to cut off US aid to the Palestinians if their leaders don't agree to peace talks with Israel.
Israel's UN Ambassador Danon said in a statement Thursday that Abbas is "seeking to put an end to any possibility of negotiations with Israel".
Abbas will attend the routine monthly meeting on the Middle East, which focuses on the Israel-Palestinian issue.
The invitation follows U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December.

If the Security Council agrees to recommend the entity as a "state" for full membership to the General Assembly, the United Nations must still approve it with a two-thirds majority.
Since taking office, Trump has distanced himself somewhat from the two-state solution favored by his predecessors for the past two decades saying he would support Palestinian independence only if Israel agrees.
The United States, by far the largest contributor to United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), announced on January 16 that Washington would withhold $65 million of $125 million it had planned for the agency this year.
The monthly council meeting typically includes a briefing by the United Nations special envoy for the Middle East peace process and statements by both the Palestinian and Israeli envoys. In a speech to the Palestine Liberation Organization's Central Council, Abbas called the reported peace plane "the slap in the face of the century", according to the Jerusalem Post.
Al-Otaibi said Carter has followed the Palestinian question for a long time, his position against Israeli settlement expansion is well-known, "and we believe that he does a role to play, he can give his opinion, and that's why we chose to invite him". An outraged Abbas rejected the decision, saying the US could no longer be an acceptable mediator in the peace process. "His recent actions demonstrate the total opposite", she said.
