The Palestinians are prepared to resume peace talks with Israel after obtaining membership in the UN General Assembly, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Tuesday.

He said that the Palestinians are planning to ask the General Assembly next month to vote on their request to upgrade the status of a Palestinian state to non-member.



Abbas's comments came during a meeting with representatives of the European Union in his office.

The meeting came in the context of Abbas's efforts to persuade the EU to support his new statehood bid.
