Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday said the Palestinian position on resuming peace talks according to the 1967 lines was known to the US and Israel and that “the ball is now in the Israeli court,” official Palestinian news agency WAFA cited Abbas as saying.

The "Palestinian position is very clear and is known to the Americans and Israelis and Israel has to accept this to re-launch negotiations so that we can go back to the negotiating table as soon as possible to reach a solution to all outstanding issues and achieve the two-state solution on the 1967 borders,” he was quoted as saying at a press conference in Ramallah with Mohamed Waheed Hassan, president of the Maldives.

Abbas was reported as praising the effort of US Secretary of State John Kerry toward finding a solution to the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians.
