In Call to Netanyahu, Abbas Urges Cooperation

Mahmoud Abbas told Benjamin Netanyahu during a call to extend Passover greetings that “both sides need to work for peace.”

The Palestinian Authority president called Israel’s prime minister Sunday in honor of the holiday. Reportedly it is the first time the two leaders have spoken since Netanyahu’s government took office March 31.

During the short call, Netanyahu “spoke of the cooperation and the discussions that they have had in the past and added that he intends to do so again in the future in order to advance peace between us and the Palestinians,” according to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office.
