Abbas tells Gal-On he is committed to two-state solution

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas stressed his commitment to a two-state solution during a meeting in Ramallah with Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On on Sunday.
Abbas also told the Meretz delegation that he will seek UN recognition of a Palestinian state in September.
During the meeting, Gal-On condemned Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman's campaign against Abbas, which drew praise from the PA president.
The week before, Liberman had sent a letter to the Quartet urging them to call Palestinian elections in a bid to oust Abbas. staff contributed to this report
