Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said that if Israel recognizes the right of Palestinians to statehood and stops all settlement activity in the West Bank and Jerusalem, "we will immediately go to negotiations," Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds reported on Tuesday.

Abbas was speaking at a political function in Colombia, part of a tour in South America aimed at garnering support for the Palestinian bid for full membership in the United Nations.
