President Mahmoud Abbas said Saturday that the leadership in Ramallah was working to form a unity government within weeks, reported Ma'an News Agency.

“It may need the coming two weeks,” Abbas told Ma'an on the sidelines of a global economic forum in Jordan.

At the conference, Abbas met the secretary-general of the Arab League, Nabil al-Arabi, and other Palestinian economists and businessmen.

On Saturday, Abbas said that peace with Israel was still possible and called for international investment in Palestine, as the World Economic Forum convened at a Jordanian Dead Sea resort.

"We still say we want a comprehensive and just peace, and we want to have two states living side by side in accordance with international resolutions, the Road Map plan and the Arab Peace Initiative," Abbas said during the opening session. "Everybody knows we have committed to the agreements we signed and we have already fulfilled our obligations," he added.

Abbas urged businessmen from Arab countries to invest in Palestine and create partnerships with Palestinian business leaders.
