Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has announced plans for his national authority to begin issuing ‘State of Palestine’ passports in 2016.

 

Speaking at a joint press conference in Athens with Greece’s prime minister Alexis Tsipras, 80-year-old Abbas said that within the next year all official documents and passports will change their naming from ‘Palestinian Authority’ to ‘State of Palestine’.

 

“Regarding the issue of a passport under the name Palestine State, we are about to proceed to the passport replacement and the issuance of a new passport within one year or even less. We have already changed all documents issued by ministries and public services and they now bear the name State of Palestine,” he said.

 

“We no longer accept from anybody to use the name Palestinian Authority,” added Abbas.
