Israel collects taxes on behalf of the PA, but withheld 138 million US dollars in transfers in February over Palestinian payments to political prisoners jailed for attacks against Israelis.
Abbas further criticized Israel for deducting millions of shekels from tax and tariff revenues it collects on behalf of the Palestinians in response to payments made by the PA to families of security prisoners and Palestinians killed during attacks on Israelis.
"When we met for the fourth time, I had a feeling that we could resolve the Palestinian issue in half an hour", Abbas said.

The details of Trump's mysterious peace plan have been kept under wraps, but it is expected to be unveiled at the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan - although some reports claimed it's aiming for Israel's independence day, an unlikely choice for obvious reasons.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in March that the Trump administration's clear pro-Israel bias means the United States can not be accepted as a serious mediator in the conflict.
The PA have protested the measure and refused to receive any funds gathered by Israel until Tel Aviv pays it in full.
Addressing the Arab League in Cairo, Abbas said the US could offer nothing to the Palestinians in light of the moves it has taken against them, including recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the subsequent transfer of the USA embassy there, as well as cutting aid. As a result, many PA employees' salaries were chopped in half in March.
The World Bank warned last week of an economic crisis, if the issue is not resolved.
Abbas' claims fly in the face of reality, as the Palestinians have systematically rejected every offer of peace, beginning in 1947 with the UN Partition Plan. "We have been paying salaries to the families of prisoners, martyrs and wounded Palestinians since 1965", he said. The declaration reportedly concluded that plans that do not grant Palestinians legal rights, will never bring a lasting peace to the region.
The Arab League's move comes as the Trump administration prepares to unveil a much-touted "Deal of the Century" for peace between the Palestinians and Israel in the coming months.
"Some Arab countries, especially Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, are very interested in the deal of the century", the official said. "They are using all means, including political and financial blackmail, to force the Palestinians to accept the deal of the centurydespite all the dangers it poses to the Palestinian cause", the source said, noting that the Authority would not submit to any pressure.
