Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday said that he would be willing to resume negotiations with Israel, but conditioned it on Israel submitting an encouraging and helpful proposal that can be built upon.
The Hebrew-language Maariv newspaper reported that Abbas made the comments at a press conference with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, after the two met in Ramallah.
During the press conference Abbas stressed that as far as he is concerned, the solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict is establishing a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders [1949 armistice lines ed.] and ending Israeli presence in occupied lands, including the Jordan Valley.
Abbas added that the PA has a number of alternatives for negotiations, which he said he will discuss with the foreign ministers of the Arab League during their meeting on Saturday.
Ban, who began his remarks in Arabic, praised Abbas for his state-building efforts. Referring to the peace process, Ban said it was time to establish a viable Palestinians state.

Lets see what the transjordanians...err excuse me, the palistinians are willing to give up too have peace.
Nothing. They don’t want and cannot have peace.
Anyone who makes peace with Israel will end up dead.
“...but first, wouldn’t we have to have been engaged in negotiations sometime in the past? We haven’t negotiated, and will never negotiate. This shows how Zionists have sabotaged the peace process from the beginning, by believing we intended to negotiate.”
Abbas forgot the other two conditions; completely disarm and turn around with your eyes closed.
Yeah that will happen!
