Chief PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat on Sunday said that a draft resolution condemning Israel's settlement construction beyond the Green Line will be submitted to the UN Security Council in the coming days, reported Israel Radio.

He said the Palestinian delegation to the UN approved a draft of the proposal to the UNSC, but officials in Ramallah estimate that the US will veto the proposal if it makes it to the Security Council.

Erekat also said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is interested in shaking off earlier agreements by asking to start negotiations from point zero, or by offering temporary solutions.

The PLO negotiator called on Netanyahu to commit to, and clearly declare, efforts to bring an end to the occupation.
