      Abbas Rejects Israeli Security Presence in the Jordan Valley

      Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has said that if Israel insists on maintaining security presence in the Jordan Valley, there will not be a peace agreement.

      Abbas made the comments in a television interview which aired on Thursday. The comments were cited by Kol Yisrael radio and were made ahead of a meeting between Abbas and United States Secretary of State John Kerry, who has returned to Israel yet again to try and push talks forward.
