PA chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said nothing is happening behind the scenes regarding peace negotiations, in an interview with Army Radio.

Erekat said, "I don't know what is happening with Israel. I don't understand your behavior. We don't have an Israeli partner for peace."

When asked about PA President Mahmoud Abbas's comments on Friday that the failure of the peace process could lead to an intifada, Erekat said: "He [Abbas] is not threatening an intifada. We want negotiations. We want a Palestinian state through an agreement. But if there is no agreement or solution when September comes, the alternative may be a type of intifada."
