The Palestinians must be prepared for the possibility that the US and Israel may impose severe economic restrictions on the Palestinian Authority the day after the UN upgrades the status of a Palestinian state to non-member, Chief PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat warned Thursday.

"It's very important to be prepared for Israeli reactions to the upgrading of the Palestinian state's status so as to avoid a state of internal chaos [in the Palestinian territories]," Erekat said in an report about the implications of the statehood bid.

"Palestinian institutions must be prepared for a state of emergency to limit, as much as possible, the negative impact of the anticipated step."
