The Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas will make concessions to smooth talks with the Israeli occupation, a senior economic advisor to Abbas revealed on Thursday.
According to Yedioth Aharonot newspaper, advisor Mohamed Mustafa said Abbas’s agenda includes steps to curtail measures condemning the Israeli occupation at the UN and The Hague for war crimes against the Palestinians.
Abbas will reportedly give up calls to freeze Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank so as to resume peace talks with Israel.
“We’d better focus on giving a real chance to the new (US) administration,” added Abbas’s advisor.
