Head of the Palestinian negotiating team Saeb Erekat called on the US government to recognize a Palestinian state with 1967 borders, Israel Radio reported Wednesday.

He said this is a necessary step to maintain the two-state solution.

The US has opposed South American countries' recent announcements that they recognize a Palestinian state, saying that such unilateral measures hurt the peace process.
