Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas discussed the recent developments in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process with the US National Security Adviser Susan Rice.
“During the meeting in Ramallah (Thursday), Abbas and Rice discussed the faltering peace process and the Israeli decision to suspend the US-mediated peace talks,” Xinhua quoted Nabil Abu Rdeneh, spokesman for Abbas, as saying.
Abbas stressed on the necessity to release the final batch of long-term Palestinian prisoners as was agreed upon, Abu Rdeneh added.
The official revealed that Rice also discussed the possibility to revive peace negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis which officially ended last month.
Abbas reiterated the Palestinians’ commitment to serious peace talks that would lead to an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
The nine-month US-mediated peace talks ended April 29 without making any tangible progress.
During the discussions, the US worked to get the two sides to agree on a framework plan that would lead to final-status negotiations to end their prolonged conflict.
