As the Quartet meeting in Moscow came to a close on Friday morning with a joint statement condemning both Jewish construction in Jerusalem and rocket attacks launched from Gaza into Israeli territory, Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat praised the statement, according to AFP.

"We urge the Quartet to turn its statements into binding mechanisms on the ground so that Israel honours its commitments, above all halting all settlement activity in all the Palestinian territories - the West Bank and east Jerusalem," Erekat was quoted as saying. He also reportedly called on leaders from the EU, US, UN and Russia to impose a "surveillance mechanism" on Israel in order to limit its settlement construction.
