Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said that the Palestinians' application to the United Nations for official recognition of a Palestinian state was a positive development for the peace process, Al Jazeera reported on Thursday.

"Our request for UN permanent membership for the Palestinian State with 1967 borders and capital as Jerusalem doesn't aim at any kind of confrontation or conflict but it is only to maintain the option of two states and to preserve the peace process," Erekat said.

Erekat was speaking after meeting Arab League representatives in Doha, Qatar as part of a two-day meeting to lay the final touches on the PA’s statehood application to the UN.
