Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said over the weekend that he did not expect a new Israeli government to change Israel's policy toward the peace process.

Abbas said he still didn't know when US President Barack Obama would visit the region.

However, Abbas said that Obama's visit to the region was a "significant indication that could revive the peace process, which has been completely frozen over the past four years."

Abbas, in an interview with Al-Arabiya TV, said that the US would not be able to ignore the recent UN vote in favor of upgrading the Palestinians' status to non-member state.

"America can't say now that it does not recognize the UN vote," Abbas said.
