Abbas says two-state solution 'beginning to erode'

Palestinian Authority President Mahmud Abbas said Thursday he feared the concept of a two-state solution to end the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians "is beginning to erode," AFP reported.
"I would like to express concern that the situation is very difficult," he was quoted as saying in remarks at a Washington think tank.
"The concept of a Palestinian state... with an Israeli state, I fear, is beginning to erode," he said.
