Abbas Receives Israel’s Opposition Chief: Palestine’s UN Bid is to Consolidate Peace, Stability

Abbas happy

RAMALLAH, September 17, 2014 (WAFA) – A forthcoming Palestinian action at the United Nations will target the end of the conflict and reinforce the existence of two states living side by side in peace, security, and stability, said President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday as he received Isaac Herzog, chairman of the Israeli Labor Party and leader of the opposition.

During the meeting, which was held in the Presidency Headquarters in Ramallah, Abbas said that the expected Palestinian action at the UN will further aim at ending the conflict and arriving at a solution of two states, living side by side in peace, security and stability.

Meanwhile, Herzog said that a majority among the Israelis support a two-state solution despite right-wing attempts to affect the Israeli public opinion.

He added that his Labor Party is working on bringing together the forces of peace, that support the two-state solution, to face the right-wing plan during the next election in order to give peace a real opportunity between the two Palestinian-Israeli sides.

Herzog stressed that there should be more cooperation between Israeli and Palestinian ‘forces of peace’ to get the peace talks back on track towards achieving peace based on the two-state solution.
