Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Monday that the PA's acceptance as a full member to UNESCO represents support for freedom and justice.

"This vote is not directed against anyone, but represents support for freedom and justice," Abbas said in a statement to the official news agency WAFA.

"This vote is for the sake of peace and represents international consensus on support for the legitimate Palestinian national rights of our people, the foremost of which is the establishment of its independent state," he added.
