Sudan: President of Palestinian Authority Calls for International Peace Conference

Dhahran — President of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas, has called for an international peace conference.

Addressing Sunday the opening sitting of the 29th Ordinary Arab Summit in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, in presence of Arab leaders, Abbas said that "we call for an international peace conference to be held this year and establishment of a serious mechanism of negotiations that abides by the international resolutions and the application of the Arab peace initiative for reaching an end to the Israeli occupation and durable peace with Israel.

He called on the Arab leaders to confront the attempt of Israel to get a seat at the Security Council, stressing that Israel is always violating, objecting and impeding the application of the Security Council and UN resolutions.

Abbas has considered the US administration's decision to recognize Quds as the capital of Israel as a violation of the international law, indicating that the United States is not a mediator, but a party in the crisis.

He warned that the Quds area has witnessed unprecedented aggression to obliterate its identity and obliterate its Arab, Islamic and Christian features.
