Palestinian president Abbas says still seeks talks extension
Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas on Saturday said he was still interested in extending peace talks with Israel after it suspended them over a unity pact he signed with the Hamas militant group this week.

 

Abbas was speaking to a meeting of top leaders in the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) gathered for a two-day conference to asses the Palestinian strategy to achieve statehood after US-backed talks began to unravel this month. (Reuters)
