Palestinian President in favor of talks with Israel
(MENAFN) Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Friday that Palestine has never rejected political negotiations with Israel.
Speaking to reporters in a press conference in Ramallah with his Bulgarian counterpart, Rumen Radev, Abbas stressed that the Palestinian Authority (PA) has always been ready to take part in negotiations with Israel, warning that "it [PA] won't accept solutions outside the framework of international legitimacy".
"We want a two-state solution-an independent and sovereign Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital," The Times of Israel quoted Abbas as saying.
"This city, East Jerusalem, should be open to all religions, Islam, Christianity and Judaism, which will practice their religious rituals freely," he explained.
"If Hamas does not hand over everything to the national unity government, it will bear the consequences for failing the Egyptian efforts to achieve reconciliation," he warned.
