Rabbi Menahem Froman, the chief rabbi of the West Bank settlement of Tekoa, met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah on Wednesday, pledging his support for the PA's bid to gain statehood recognition at the United Nations in September.

The establishment of a Palestinian state benefits the peace process and Israel, as well as working to achieve comprehensive, just peace and stability for the region and the world, Palestinian news agency WAFA quoted Froman as saying.

Froman congratulated Abbas on the occasion of Id al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, and wished for peace and co-existence between Palestinians and Israelis through the establishment of the Palestinian state.
