The Palestinian Authority on Tuesday officially requested an emergency meeting of Arab League foreign ministers to discuss its plan to ask the UN in September to recognize a Palestinian state along the pre-1967 lines.

Barakat al-Farra, the PA envoy to Egypt, said that the meeting was being called to discuss arrangements and steps that the PA needs to take to achieve UN recognition of a state.

He said that the PA leadership was now waiting for the Arab League to set a date for the emergency meeting.

The PA is hoping to win the backing of as many Arab countries as possible for the statehood bid.
