Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas Tuesday called on Israelis "not to turn your back to the prospects of peace" and cautioned that the chances to achieve peace could not remain for too long.

In a speech before the International Economic Forum in Istanbul, Turkey, Abbas said: "We say to our Israeli neighbors that we want peace, justice and freedom.
