The Palestinian Authority on Monday denounced threats to impose sanctions on the Palestinians in response to their effort to upgrade the status of a Palestinian state to non-member in the UN.

Mohamed Shtayyeh, member of the Fatah Central Committee who is closely associated with PA President Mahmoud Abbas, said he saw no reason why the Palestinians should be punished for embarking on a "peaceful and legitimate step."
