Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said that Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s call for the implementation of the two-state solution is “positive”, but he made it clear that the real test for this is the immediate return to the negotiating table.

“The real test of the seriousness and credibility of this position is for the Israeli government to sit down at the negotiating table immediately, to implement the two-state solution on the basis of relevant international legitimacy resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative, and to stop all unilateral measures that undermine the two-state solution,” Abbas told the United Nations General Assembly.
