Palestinians Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was enraged last week during meetings in Paris with US Secretary of State John Kerry over proposals for a framework agreement for peace talks with Israel, Palestinian newspaper al-Quds reported Wednesday.

According to the report, Abbas threatened to torpedo talks with Israel after learning that a draft framework document called to designate the neighborhood of Beit Hanina, and not the whole of east Jerusalem, as the capital of any future Palestinian state.
