Palestinian Presidency Says Israel Avoids Peacemaking
Pyongyang, May 24 (KCNA) -- The Palestinian leadership on May 20 accused Israel of avoiding making peace in the Middle East.

The accusation was made after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he cannot withdraw Israeli troops from the Palestinian lands that have been occupied since 1967.

"Netanyahu's position is an official declaration that he is not ready to engage in a real peace based on justice and international legitimacy," said Nabil Abu Rdineh, spokesman for the Palestinian presidency.
