Abbas: It's important to have peace partner in Israel

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas commented on statements made by Shimon Peres on the two-state solution and said, "We don't want to intervene in Israel's internal affairs but it's important there is a partner that believes in peace."


He stressed he is not interested in delegitimizing Israel but the occupation. "We want to live as a state alongside Israel which we've already recognized." (Elior Levy)
