Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said that if the peace process continues to stagnate, he fears the nations of the region will become frustrated and no one knows what the results of such frustration might be, Israel Radio reported on Tuesday, citing an interview in Palestinian daily Al-Ayam.

Abbas said in the interview that the US had not yet offered new suggestions on how to restart stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

The PA prime minister stated that based on his dealings with Israelis and his impressions gleaned from the Israeli media, a majority of those in the Jewish state are interested in peace and understand the Palestinian's demands. He said, therefore, that in the coming weeks he will continue to meet with Israeli academics, businessmen and politicians in the coming weeks in hopes of keeping the peace process on the table.

Abbas said that the Israeli government needed to understand the demands of the Palestinians as the majority of the country does.
