Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said that Israel "must choose between peace and the continuation of settlements," in his address to the UN General Assembly on Saturday.

"Restoring the credibility of the peace process mainly requires compelling the government of Israel to comply with its obligations and commitments, particularly to cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory especially in and around east Jerusalem," he said.
