Abbas reiterates call for international peace conference

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas reiterated his call for holding an international peace conference and a multilateral mechanism to steer the peace process in order to achieve the two-state solution on the borders of 1967 with East Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state.

Abbas' statement came as he spoke, during a joint press conference, as he received the President of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bakir Izetbegovic, on Wednesday.

Abbas demanded that the United States retract all of its decisions regarding Jerusalem and Palestinian refugees, stressing that the US is a "biased mediator" which makes it "unqualified" to sponsor negotiations with Israel.

The Bosnian President said that his government supports an international peace conference and the two-state solution.

Izetbegovic also condemned Israel's settlement construction in the occupied West Bank.
