Report: Abbas Proposed Cancelling Oslo

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas proposed cancelling the Oslo Accords, a senior PLO official told AFP. Abbas reportedly raised the suggestion at a PLO meeting Tuesday.
PLO executive committee member Wassel Abu Yousef said that committee members “had mixed opinions on the issue” and decided to postpone a decision until their next meeting. Officially cancelling Oslo would mean cancelling economic arrangements with Israel.
