Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas declared Tuesday that he was determined to lead the “battle for recognition” of a Palestinian state at the UN General Assembly later this month and said he was confident that most Palestinian supported his new drive.

Abbas’s announcement came as PLO officials in Ramallah talked about the need to either cancel or change certain articles of the Oslo Accords.

In a message to Palestinians posted on his Facebook account, Abbas said he was determined to pursue the statehood bid despite pressure from the US and other countries.

Abbas said he would deliver a speech before the General Assembly on September 27 in which he would ask for recognition of a Palestinian state as a non-member of the UN.
