Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced during his speech to the United Nations General Assmebly on Friday that prior to his address, he submitted an application to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon requesting full membership for a Palestinian state based on "pre-1967 lines and with Jerusalem as its capital."

Abbas waved the letter to uproarious applause from the UN assembly, saying "I hold before you the application."
