The Palestinian Authority will not accept a partial freeze of building in the settlements for a month or two, senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat told the Al-Arabiya news channel as reported Radio Israel on Sunday.

He stated that the PA would only accept a complete building freeze in the West Bank for the duration of the negotiations.

Erekat added that the Palestinian side was deciding whether or not to seek international recognition of the Palestinian territories if a Palestinian state within 1967 boundaries was not recognized by Israel as a result of the talks.
