Ma’an   -   9 August 2011

JERICHO (Ma’an) — PLO official Saeb Erekat denied Tuesday that Palestinian Authority was planning to delay its bid for recognition at the UN in September, despite media reports.

Erekat described as “completely false” reports suggesting negotiators were considering a deal to put off the bid for statehood, a move opposed by Israel and the US.

Erekat, speaking during a meeting in Jericho with US and Spanish envoys in Jerusalem, said the bid to join the UN as a member state would not preclude negotiations with Israel.
