The Palestinian Authority will consult Arab nations before it approaches international organizations unilaterally, PA Foreign Affairs Minister Riad al-Malki said ahead of PA President Mahmoud Abbas's trip to Tunisia and Libya, Palestinian Ma'an news agency reported Sunday.

"We will determine the steps that we will take according to the choices available to us," Malki told Ma'an following a visit by US envoy to the Middle East David Hale to Ramallah, where he met with Abbas to discuss the stalled peace process with Israel.

"When we study all the options we will head to our Arab brothers for consultation, and after this is done we will begin to move outside," he said.

On Saturday, an Abbas spokesperson said that the PA was ready to restart negotiations with Israel if Jerusalem responds positively to a list of Palestinians demands outlined in a letter by Abbas and relayed to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. Otherwise, the PA will resume efforts to unilaterally achieve UN recognition of Palestinian state, and move to isolate Israeli "occupation" policies by exposing their real effects on Palestinians living in the West Bank, the spokesperson warned.
