NEW YORK -27 Sept 2018: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Thursday “Al Quds issue is not for sale” and that the Palestinian people’s rights “are not up for bargaining.”
Speaking at the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly in New York, Abbas said the Israeli army proceeds with violating Palestine's sacred places.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian president noted that Israel’s racial nationality law will necessarily lead to the establishment of one state and cancels the two-state solution.
We call on the international community to render the law racial and illegal, he said.
Abbas noted that the Palestine Liberation Organization has decided to review the agreements signed with the Israeli government.
We’ll continue stretching out our hands for peace, he said, stressing that the Palestinians never rejected negotiations with Israel
