Abbas: Israeli govt coalition may change, peace demands will not

Jan. 27, 2013 1:30 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 28, 2013 6:41 P.M.)
ADDIS ABABA (Ma’an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas said Sunday that while Israeli governmental coalitions may change, the demands for peace will not, according to the official Palestinian news agency.

Abbas, addressing the African Union summit in the Ethiopian capital, said Israel must end settlement activities, release all Palestinian prisoners, and resolve all final status issues with Palestine before peace can be achieved, according to Wafa.

Israel's politicians are currently wrangling over the composition of a new coalition government after Tuesday's national elections.

Whatever the outcome, Abbas said, Israel has no right to impose a blockade on Gaza and racial discrimination in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which he said reflected the practices of apartheid.

US-brokered peace talks broke down in 2010 after Israel declined to renew a partial freeze on settlement building.

Since then Israel has accelerated construction in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem - and the Palestine has taken steps to gain greater recognition at the United Nations and its agencies.
