The Palestinian Authority Wednesday voiced opposition to any Israeli unilateral moves, saying this would end the idea of a two-state solution.

The PA's announcement came in response to statements made by Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

Nabil Abu Rudaineh, a spokesman for PA President Mahmoud Abbas, said that any Israeli unilateral withdrawal [from the West Bank] would lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state with provisional borders - something that the Palestinians are opposed to.

"This policy won't lead to a solution and would prolong the conflict," Abu Rudaineh said in a statement. "It will end the idea of the two-state solution." He said that the Palestinians remained committed to a just, lasting and comprehensive solution for a Palestinian state on the basis of the 1967 "borders" with Jerusalem as its capital.

The Palestinians would not accept any solution that does not include Jerusalem, he stressed.
