      Abbas Restates Bid for Palestinian Statehood

      Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority (PA) told the United Nations General Assembly, Thursday evening, that the PA would continue to upgrade its status at the UN. He cited the PA's acceptance, a year ago, by the UN Educational and Scientific Organization (UNESCO).

      Abbas said the PA was not trying to delegitimize Israel but that Israel was trying to delegitimize the PA.
