Abbas: Settlements erode faith in peace

Abbas says the world recognizes that Israeli settlements are illegal.

Many Palestinians, he says, see settlements across the West Bank and “do not trust the two-state solution anymore.” Young people conclude that an agreement is no longer possible.

But the Palestinian leadership does support that solution, on the 1967 lines, he says.

If Israel makes peace with the Palestinians, he says, it will have peace with the whole Arab and Islamic world.

With that, the two leaders leave the stage.
