Erekat says will consult with Arab leaders on US proposal

November 14, 2010 09:35

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat on Sunday expressed strong reservations about the proposal because the 90-day moratorium on new construction would only apply to the West Bank and not east Jerusalem, the Palestinians' hoped-for capital. But Erekat did not reject it outright, saying the Palestinians would consult among themselves and with Arab leaders.

Erekat, the Palestinian negotiator, said the Americans had not officially informed the Palestinians about the details of the proposal, but "they know we have a major problem in not including east Jerusalem."
