RAMALLAH -- Palestinian Authority Prime Minster Salam Fayyad said on Tuesday he is confident his government will have the institutional framework in place by the end of the summer necessary to win global support for an independent Palestinian state.

“It is our goal and our expectation that as a result of what we are doing – getting ready for statehood, developing institutions that delivery services competently and [developing] core values – that our state of Palestine will be founded,” Fayyad said. “I am very happy to tell you that in many areas of governance we are already there.”
