Switzerland confirmed on Friday that the Palestinian Authority has formally singed for accession for the Geneva Conventions, which provide the rules of conduct for war and occupations.

Switzerland, the guardian of the treaties, formally registered the PA's declaration as party to the conventions on Thursday, Swiss Foreign Ministry spokesman Pierre-Alain Eltschinger told AFP.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas signed a letter of accession to join the conventions on April 2, Eltschinger confirmed.
