Abbas: What Israel calls itself is none of our business

“If the Israelis want to call themselves any name, they should address the international community and the United Nations, because this is none of our business,” Abbas told reporters.

Abbas said that the PLO had recognized Israel when the Oslo Accords were signed in 1993.  “Our position is that we recognize Israel,” he said. “We fully believe in the twostate solution – a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders and the State of Israel, living next to each other in peace and security.
