Jailed Senior Fatah official Marwan Bargouti said that a Palestinian state can not be established through negotiations, in an interview with Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram.

"We can not wait for a state to rise as a result of negotiations," he said in response to a question about the possibility of the Palestinians unilaterally declaring statehood. "Whoever thinks we will get a Palestinian State through negotiations is wrong."
