PMO on Peres's Comments: Abbas Never Agreed to Anything

Officials in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) denied on Tuesday that President Shimon Peres had reached a peace agreement with Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas three years ago.

Peres exposed the agreement in an Independence Day interview with Channel 2 News, during which he said that he had held talks with Abbas at the request of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. Peres also said that Netanyahu ultimately backed down from the deal.
