Palestinian officials on Thursday denied that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was planning to resign or dismantle the PA.

The denial came in response to unconfirmed reports published in a number of Arab media outlets that claimed that Abbas was about to make a "surprise announcement" in the coming days.

Ghassan Shaka'ah, member of the PLO Executive Committee, described the reports as "unfounded rumors."
