PLO Secretary General Yasser Abed Rabbo: “What we need now is a clear Arab and international position setting the basis for the peace process in order to end the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territory, but not just for the purpose of engaging in negotiations. Then we can talk about negotiations whose main aim is to end the occupation”.
