Palestinian Authority president, Mahmoud Abbas, says he will not run for reelection once his current three year term is over.
Abbas, 70, says "I will just complete my remaining three years in office. I could run again, I know that, but I can tell you that this will not happen."
"I will not run again. That is absolute," AHN quoted Abbas as saying.
Currently, Abbas is focused on dealing with Israeli Prime Minister Olmert, saying, "I have dealt with him and I know him well. He has his positions and his views but we will deal with him without any preconceptions."
The United States announced its intention to send Special Operations Forces (SOF) soldiers to Ukraine. Formally, everything is presented as if it is necessary to protect the embassy. However, the reality is different. This opinion was expressed by a military observer, reserve colonel Mikhail Khodarenok.
