Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Wednesday that his decision to break bilateral agreements with Israel and the United States in the wake of Israeli plans to annex areas in the West Bank, including the Jordan Valley, “does not mean this does not want peace. “
In a statement on the video conference in front of the Arab Parliament, Abbas reiterated its rejection of the annexation plans and the so-called “Deal of the Century”, the United States’ latest proposal to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
He has indicated that the collapse of the agreements “does not mean that peace is not desired” and has shown his willingness to hold an “international conference” to work through a “multilateral mechanism” such as the Middle East Quartet to find a solution.
Abbas has further argued that Israel must take “all responsibilities” in the Occupied Territories if it implements its annexation plans, which it has described as an “illegal move,” as reported by the Palestinian news agency WAFA. .
