MILAN - Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in an interview published on Saturday that he may step down this year if he achieves all his political goals, which include the establishment of a Palestinian state.

"When I was elected my program included greater security, economic and social development, achieving (Palestinian) reconciliation, and then independence of our state," he said. "This year there is the possibility of achieving all this. Then I will go into retirement."
