In an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," on Sunday, former US
president Bill Clinton called the Palestinian attempt to secure
statehood at the United Nations an "act of frustration," but says he
believes "the Palestinians understand that they have to negotiate
borders and security with the Israelis."
Clinton said he expects the US to veto the move when it comes before
the Security Council, and that the next step will be to make sure the
situation does not spiral out of control.
"We're either going to go forward or fall back," the former president said, continuing, "I favor going forward."
