Abbas avoids clash with Israel over state symbols

Published: 01.07.13, 19:37 / Israel News

Palestinian officials say they will not rush to issue new passports and ID cards with the emblem "State of Palestine" to avoid confrontation with Israel.

 

Last week, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas decreed that in official documents "State of Palestine" must replace "Palestinian Authority," the name of his self-rule government. His decision came after the UN General Assembly recognized a state of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem in late November, overriding Israeli objections. (AP)
