Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday declared during a tour of Ramallah that in the future Palestinian state, "There will be no Israeli presence."

He rejected the possibility of Israeli soldiers remaining stationed along the borders of the future state and also expressed opposition to the presence of settlers.

"We are prepared to move toward peace based on international resolutions, the Road Map and 1967 borders, but when a Palestinian state is established it will be empty of any Israeli presence," said Abbas.
