Palestinian Authority Leader Mahmoud Abbas

(Worthy News) - Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas urged members of the continental African Union to back a French-led initiative to hold an international summit on relaunching negotiations on the decades-long Middle East conflict.

According to Palestinian news agency Ma'an, Abbas told the 54-member state body during its 27th-annual summit in Kigali, Rwanada that its international and regional influence makes it an important player in promoting peace.

Abbas reiterated his unwavering position that peace between the two side can only occur if Israel withdraws to the pre-1967 borders and an independent Palestinian state is established with a capital in east Jerusalem. [ Source ]
