Responding to accusations that the Palestinian Authority took unilateral actions by seeking recognition from South American countries this week, Chief PA Negotiator Saeb Erekat told Army Radio on Tuesday that there is nothing unilateral about it.

Erekat went further, saying that such recognition was not even new. He noted that the Palestinians declared statehood in 1988, which was since recognized by 104 countries around the world.
