NEW YORK, September 26 (Itar-Tass) - The State of Palestine has fulfilled all obligations assumed in the process of the Middle East settlement and aims to create a favourable atmosphere to continue peace talks with Israel. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas stated this from the rostrum of the UN General Assembly on Thursday.
He said Palestine had done all in accordance with the obligations assumed, met all the requirements of the international community as conditions for peace. Abbas also said Palestine’s objective was to achieve a constructive atmosphere to continue serious and intensive talks. The ultimate aim of this process, Abbas said, is “to officially declare an end to conflicts” with Israel.
Direct talks between the two countries were resumed in Washington in late July after a three-year break caused by Israel’s refusal to stop the construction of settlements on occupied territories.
Three rounds of the Palestinian-Israeli consultations were held since the Washington meeting. The fourth one was due in the city of Jericho in the West Bank in late August, but it was cancelled when three Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli soldiers in Qalandia refugee camp near Ramallah.
