Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has demanded a map for a future Palestinian state before the resumption of any peace talks, Palestinian news agency Ma'an quoted an aide as saying on Friday.

Abbas "wants to know, through a map to be presented by Binyamin Netanyahu to [US Secretary of State John] Kerry, what the prime minister's view of a two-state solution would be, especially the borders," Ma'an quoted political adviser Nimr Hammad as saying.

"Any return to negotiations requires Netanyahu to agree on 1967 borders," Hammad was quoted as saying.

The remarks come just days ahead of a scheduled visit by Kerry, who will return to Israel on Monday as part of his efforts to restart negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
