RAMALLAH, (PIC)– De facto Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has declared readiness to announce an end to the conflict with Israel and give up most of historical Palestine.

Abbas, speaking in an interview with the Israeli Channel One TV last night, said that he was ready to declare an end to Palestinian demands and an end to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in the event a peaceful settlement was reached.

Abbas, also the leader of Fatah faction, said that he recognizes Israel and then it has the right to call itself whatever it likes whether Jewish or otherwise. He noted, however, that Israel did not ask Egypt or Jordan or any other country to recognize it as a “Jewish state”.
