Abbas tells Israeli academics that Palestinians support two-state solution

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas tells a group of Israeli academics that the Palestinians support a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on the two-state solution and international decisions, the official PA news site Wafa reports.

Abbas met with the Israeli academics at the Muqata, the PA presidential headquarters in Ramallah.

“The Palestinian side is committed to the achievement of a just and comprehensive peace based on the principle of the two-state solution and decisions of international legitimacy, despite all the difficulties and obstacles the Israeli government has placed on the path to peace,” the PA president says.

For his part, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused Abbas of preventing the advancement of peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.
