We will have a resolution, to be presented to the Security Council, that will say very clearly what we expect from the (peace) process and what the solution to the conflict must be, AFP quoted President Hollande as saying in the press conference.
"[T]here is a perception that there will never be a solution to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, even though we know the outlines of a possible agreement, he said.
President Abbas on his part called on all nations to do their part to end the conflict, the French press agency said.
Making peace will give added legitimacy to the fight against terrorism in the region, he added.
From Paris Abbas is scheduled to leave for New York where he is expected to promote the most recent Palestinian push for a final peace agreement and independence, this time from within the UN and with is backed by the Arab League.
