World Must Save Two-State Formula : Aabbas Tells U.N. Israeli Actions Could Lead To One State

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said, that israel is destroying the two-state solution with actions that could lead Palestinians to demand equal rights within one binational state comprising israel, the Occupied West Bank and Gaza.

Addressing the U.N. General Assembly, Abbas, urged the International Community to act to save the two state formula that for decades has been the bedrock of diplomacy for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Abbas said Israel was destroying the prospect of a political settlement based on the two state solution through its settlements on west bank land it captured in the 1967 Middle East war.
