Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat responded on Tuesday to a comments by US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, denying his accusation that Palestinians are not seeking peace.

"No one stands to gain more from peace with Israel than Palestinians and no one stands to lose more in the absence of peace than Palestinians," Erekat told Reuters. "Only those who want to maintain the Israeli occupation will claim the Palestinians are not interested in peace."
