Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas revealed his version of his contacts with Israel during the Olmert government and his basic principles for a political agreement. On July 28, as reported by the Palestinian WAFA news service, he told journalists in Cairo:
“I’m willing to agree to a third party that would supervise the agreement, such as NATO forces, but I would not agree to having Jews among the NATO forces, or that there will live among us even a single Israeli on Palestinian land.”
