President’s spokesman: Results of Israeli elections will not come at Palestinian expense

Even though the Israeli elections are an internal Israeli matter, its results will not come at Palestinian expense, today said Nabil Abu Rudeineh, spokesman for President Mahmoud Abbas.

The results of the Israeli elections are an internal matter, he said in a statement. What matters for us is the preservation of our national and legitimate rights, first and foremost in Jerusalem and its holy places, and we will not allow anyone to liquidate our cause.

Abu Rudeineh added: We are ready to deal with any Israeli government committed to achieving a just and comprehensive peace based on United Nations resolutions to establish an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital on the 1967 borders.

Our Palestinian people, under the leadership of President Mahmoud Abbas, will remain steadfast on their land adhering to their national constants, will thwart all conspiracies aimed at liquidating our national cause and will prevail just as they did in all the battles they fought in defense of our national rights.
