He stressed the importance the two-State solution on the basis of the pre-1967 borders and the longstanding parameters enshrined in the relevant United Nations resolutions, Madrid Principles, Arab Peace Initiative and Quartet Roadmap.and also feels that  the Security Council’s paralysis,

In April 2014, President Mahmoud Abbas signed 15 instruments of accession to multilateral treaties, affirming the State of Palestine’s acceptance of the principles therein, readiness to uphold legal obligations, and commitment to promoting the rights of the Palestinian people in accordance with the law. Among those are the core treaties of international humanitarian law – the Four Geneva Conventions, Additional Protocol 1 and the 1907 Hague Convention, and the core human rights treaties, including, among others, the International Covenants on Civil and Political Rights and on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, Convention on the Rights of the Child, Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid. 

The Palestinian people will never forgo their inalienable rights, and the Palestinian leadership will continue to take all necessary political, legal and peaceful measures for the fulfillment of those rights and the achievement of justice, freedom and peace for our people. We once again appeal for the international community’s support in this noble endeavor.
