Abbas: Understanding with Olmert for 1967 Palestinian state

PA President Mahmoud Abbas revealed that he had an understanding with former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that Jerusalem would not be divided, Israel Radio reported on Saturday.
According to an interview with Abbas on Al-Jazeera TV on Friday, the agreement maintained that Jerusalem would remain open to all religions and will consist of two municipalities working side by side.  Abbas did not discuss the issue of sovereignty over the Temple Mount.
Abbas called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to agree to his predecessor's understanding, which he emphasized could be the basis for renewing negotiations, the report stated.
The PA president added that an understanding was reached regarding the borders of a Palestinian state, which would be based upon 1967 borders with minor adjustments and land exchange areas, and would include third party representatives stationed within the new founded state.
