Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat on Sunday criticized US Republican presidential Mitt Romney's declarations that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, saying, "I don't think occupation and aggression is rewarded even during an election campaign," according to CNN.  

"East Jerusalem is occupied territory," Erekat said. "Those who seek peace between Palestine and Israel and those who seek to save lives must stand tall for the two state solution and for East Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Palestine."
