PARIS - Israel's planned internal investigation into the Gaza flotilla raid falls short of UN Security Council demands, said Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday.

Abbas also said "Israel must lift the blockade ... That is our principal and permanent demand."

The PA president's comments came after a meeting with French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Paris . Asked about Israel's announcement that it would hold an investigation under an Israeli judge and with two outside experts, Abbas said this "does not correspond" with Security Council demands that the Palestinians had approved.

The Security Council on June 1 asked for an "impartial" investigation into the Israeli flotilla raid in which nine activists were killed.
