Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas made a plea the political dispute on the Palestinian issue to not turn into a religious conflict because it would give ground to the extremists, in his address on Tuesday at the Senate Hall of the Greek parliament.

Abbas characterised the occupation since 1967 the “longest-standing oppressive phenomenon in the history of humanity”, the broadening of the occupation process and the building of the wall as “dangerous phenomena” and noted that he personally supports the peaceful struggle and condemns any kind of violence. “We want a peaceful negotiation and we believe in the vision of two states that will be recognised by all the countries of the world in order to live in stability and safety”, underlined the Palestinian president.

Referring to the Greek parliament’s resolution for the recognition of the Palestinian State earlier on Tuesday, Abbas said that it was a “great step taken by the Greek people” and asked from the international community to implement the international law and called it the “last chance” for the start of peace talks on the Palestinian issue.
