Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is set to head to Paris on Friday in a bid to talk President Francois Hollande into supporting his plan to obtain a U.N. Security Council resolution on ending Israel's occupation of Palestinian territories within a specific timetable.

During his two-day visit to Paris, Abbas will brief Hollande on his plan to end the Israeli occupation and the situation in the Gaza Strip in the aftermath of Israel's devastating onslaught on the Palestinian enclave, the official Voice of Palestine radio reported.

Abbas will also attend the 69th Session of the UN General Assembly, due later this month, in an effort to garner more international support for the plan, Foreign Ministry undersecretary Tayseer Jaradat told Anadolu Agency.

The blueprint calls on the United States and Israel to recognize a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with has East Jerusalem as its capital. It also includes a timetable for ending the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.

The Israeli offensive finally came to an end late last month with the announcement of an indefinite cease-fire, which calls for opening all border crossings between the Gaza Strip and Israel – effectively ending the latter's seven-year blockade of the coastal territory.

According to the agreement's terms, Palestinian and Israeli negotiators will hold indirect negotiations on other core Palestinian demands – including the release of prisoners and the establishment of a Gaza seaport – after one month.
