Abbas seeks UN help over Palestinian refugees

(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Saturday asked the Palestinian observer mission at the United Nations to promptly act with Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to take "appropriate and necessary" measures for the absorption of Palestinian refugees on their land.

The Palestinian News Agency Wafa said the Palestinian presidency was holding contacts with the United Nations and European and other concerned parties to apply pressure on the Israeli government to allow the absorption of Palestinian refugees in their territory.

It said the presidency sought international help "to stop the Palestinians' plight of displacement, death and dispersal in world countries due to the current difficult conditions in the region".

"The Palestinian presidency deems this mission (taking in Palestinian refugees) not just a humanitarian mission, but a right of every Palestinian living in exile and refugee camps (to return)".
