Israeli media reports claim that the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, will make concessions to smooth talks with the Israeli occupation.

According to Israeli newspaper Yedioth Aharonot, senior economic adviser to Abbas, Mohamed Mustafa revealed on Thursday that Abbas’ agenda includes steps to curtail measures condemning the Israeli occupation at the UN and the Hague for war crimes against the Palestinians.

The report indicates that Abbas will give up calls to freeze Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank so as to resume peace talks with Israel.

“We’d better focus on giving a real chance to the new administration,” Abbas’ adviser reportedly said, according to the Israeli paper.
