UN coordinator responds to 'The Palestine Papers,' saying PA is committed to securing "the legitimate rights and interests" of Palestinians.
 
The UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process said on Monday that the commentary on the leaked "Palestine Papers" is inaccurate.

"I welcome robust political debate, but some of the commentary I have seen conveys an inaccurate impression," Robert Serry said in a statement.

"I can personally attest to the commitment of the Palestinian leadership to secure the legitimate rights and interests of the Palestinian people, based on international law and UN resolutions," the UN coordinator said.

Serry added that he "would urge both parties to show their readiness for a negotiated peace based on a two-state solution, and to deliver on the ground."

"It is to the genuine credit of the Palestinian leadership that they are doing so," he said, "and this is widely acknowledged in the United Nations."

On Sunday evening, Al-Jazeera released part of the 1,684 documents it dubbed "The Palestine Papers." Palestinian Authority sources deny much of the leaked documents' content.
