PARIS - Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Wednesday he could be forced to suspend security cooperation with Israel if the ramp-up of Israeli settlements continued.

"If the colonization continues, I would have no other choice, it would not be my fault," Abbas told France's Senate during a visit to Paris.

On Tuesday, he met President Francois Hollande, who voiced concern over a law retroactively legalizing about 4,000 settler homes built on privately owned Palestinian land in the West Bank.
