The international community should counter Israel's plan for the construction of 1,300 new housing units in east Jerusalem by recognizing a Palestinian state, senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat was quoted as saying Tuesday.

"Israeli unilateralism is a call for immediate international recognition of the Palestinian state," he said, according to a Reuters report.

Erekat's comments came as both EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and US President Barack Obama expressed concern over the plan.
