Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Monday that leaked documents detailing peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians deliberately confuse the positions of either side, according to Reuters.

The documents, obtained by Al-Jazeera television channel, indicate that Palestinian negotiators offered Israel much bigger concessions than previously revealed.

"There was an intentional mix-up. I have seen them [Al-Jazeera] present things as Palestinian but infact they were Israeli... This is therefore intentional," Abbas said in Cairo.

Abbas also explained that the peace talks were carried out in an open manner.
