RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas received a delegation of 30 Israeli economists from Breaking the Impasse, on Thursday, at the presidential headquarters in the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

Breaking the Impasse, which was launched in 2013, is a forum of Israeli and Palestinian business leaders, whose aim is to urge the Israeli government and Palestinian Authority (PA) to reach a peace agreement based on the two-state solution.

During the meeting, Abbas reaffirmed the commitment of the Palestinian leadership to achieve a two-state solution leading to the founding of a Palestinian state with occupied East Jerusalem as its capital on the borders of June 4th 1967.

Shmuel Metar, head of Breaking the Impasse, told Abbas that the organization and the majority of the Israeli people are committed to achieving peace based on a two-state solution.

Attending the meeting were Member of the Executive Committee of the PLO, Ziyad Abu Amr, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Information Nabil Abu Rudeineh, and Member of the Fatah Central Committee Muhammad al-Madani.
