Abbas: Netanyahu Agreed to Palestinian State Along '67 Borders'

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas claimed on Thursday that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had agreed to establish a Palestinian state along the pre-1967 borders, a claim that the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) denied.

Abbas, who spoke in a televised interview and quoted by the Ma’an news agency, said that Netanyahu had agreed to the Palestinian state and that the only thing left to negotiate was the exact borders.
