Palestinian President calls on UN to convene an international conference to launch a “genuine peace process” between Israel and Palestine

Expressing hope for a better peace plan, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on September 25, urged United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to call for an international conference early next year for the launch of “a genuine peace process” between Israel and Palestine.

Mr. Abbas appealed to Mr. Guterres to work with the Middle East Quartet of mediators – the United States, Russia, the European Union, and the U.N. – and the U.N. Security Council on a conference “with full authority and with the participation of all concerned parties, early next year, to engage in a genuine peace process.”

It must be noted that Palestinians are demanding for a state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip with east Jerusalem as its capital, which has been in occupation with Israel since 1967. Mr. Abbas, told the 193-member U.N. General Assembly, “There will be no peace, no security, no stability and no coexistence in our region while this occupation continues and a just, comprehensive solution to the question of Palestine, the core of the conflict, remains denied.”
