PLO official: PA prefers negotiations to unilateral declaration of Palestinian state
PLO Secretary General Yasser Abed Rabbo calls for 'real and serious' negotiations with Israel in interview with Al-Hayat newspaper, says Palestinian state must be based on 1967 borders and population transfer not an option.

By DPA and Haaretz Service




The Palestinian Authority will defer its attempts to unilaterally declare a Palestinian state at the United Nations if "real and serious" negotiations with Israel begin, an official was quoted saying Monday.

Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization Yasser Abed Rabbo told London-based Al-Hayat newspaper on Monday that the basis of any negotiated agreement must be according to "the 1967 borders, very limited exchange of land and no exchanges of populations."

Abed Rabbo called on the Middle East quartet, comprised of the UN, the European Union, the United States and Russia to "tackle these negotiations in accordance with the timetable we previously agreed on, which ends in September," he told the London-based daily.

The quartet has called for an agreement to be reached by September on all final status issues to settle the Israeli-Palestinian conflicts.
