Egypt is promoting an Arab initiative by which the Palestinians would turn directly to the UN with demands for statehood and a halt to Israeli expansion of West Bank settlements, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat told Palestinian news agency Ma'an in an interview on Monday.

Erekat stated that the idea of going to the UN followed the United State's failure to prevent Israel from building in settlements.

"When we talk about alternatives, this doesn’t mean failing [in the] talks; we want them to succeed," Erekat told Ma'an. "The issue is not easy and negotiation is a tool that is used to solve problems, not a goal in itself. If Israel made the talks fail, then we will go to the other options."
