Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas was quoted in Palestinian Arab news sources as claiming that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu agreed to a Palestinian state on the 1949 Armistice lines – apparently Abbas actually said that the US, not Netanyahu, had made that agreement.

Abbas’s actual statements from the recent interview were that the US expressed its support for establishing a Palestinian state along the “1967 borders,” adding that all that was left was to sketch up the final border lines, reports Walla!.

Netanyahu hurried to deny the reports that he had made the agreement, and likewise denied reports in a Jordanian daily that Netanyahu and Abbas met in Amman last week.
