The US is opposed to any Palestinian plan to unilaterally declare the formation of a state along the 1967 borders outside of negotiations with Israel, a State Department official said Monday night. "We support the creation of a Palestinian state," spokesman Ian Kelly told reporters, but "we are convinced that has to be achieved through negotiations between two parties."
