Abbas: Vote for Palestine as 'investment in peace'

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is appealing to all nations to vote in favor of a UN resolution recognizing the state of Palestine as "an investment in peace."

 

Abbas said in a statement Thursday ahead of the vote that despite diminishing hopes and a worsening situation on the ground due to Israeli violations "we remain committed to the two-state solution and our hand remains extended in peace." (AP)
