Official PA TV, speech by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas at the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on Jan. 28, 2018

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “The continuation of the peace efforts requires the establishment of a bilateral international body under the umbrella of the UN, and we call for the African Union and its member states to have representatives in this body or in the international summit, which we are calling to organize according to the decisions of the international institutions, the principle of the two-state solution on the 1967 borders, and the end of the Israeli occupation on the land of Palestine, including East Jerusalem, the capital of our state, which we want to be open to all believers of the monotheistic religions - Islam, Christianity, and Judaism - who will carry out their religious rituals and prayers there, in security and peace, which will provide an opportunity to everyone who is in Palestine and Israel to live in security, stability, and good neighborliness.”
