JERICHO, November 10, 2012, (WAFA) – Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb
Erekat Saturday described as rumors reports about the Palestinian bid to the
United Nations.

Some reports claimed President Mahmoud Abbas may delay presenting a
resolution to the UN General Assembly asking to grant Palestine a non-member
state status.

In a statement issued following meetings he held with a number of European
diplomats at his Jericho office, Erekat urged Palestinians “to ignore rumors
and misleading reports propagated by Israel against President Mahmoud Abbas,
the PLO and Palestinian leaders.”

He stressed that the UN resolution will be submitted for a vote later this
month.

The Palestine delegation to the UN distributed on Thursday a draft
resolution to the UN member states hoping to get a feedback from them on its
text.

Erekat also said that Arab and Muslim nations have unanimously agreed to
support the UN bid for a non-member state based on 1967 borders with East
Jerusalem as its capital.

Erekat also urged European Union governments to vote for the Palestinian bid
saying it would be a victory for peace, democracy, and freedom.
