Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on Israel to return to the negotiating table. He said Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid's call for a two-state solution was a positive development, but said the proof would be a return to negotiations, Reuters reported.

"The true test of the credibility and seriousness of this stance is for the Israeli government to return to the negotiation table immediately," he told the U.N. General Assembly, in a speech that largely lambasted Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories.

While Western governments support the two-state formula, he said, they actually obstruct its implementation by not recognizing Palestine as a state and shielding Israel from responsibility. He called on the United Nations to recognize Palestine's full state membership and to develop a plan to end the Israeli occupation.
