The Palestinian Authority may postpone plans to ask the UN in September to recognize a Palestinian state along the pre-1967 lines, a senior PA official in Ramallah said on Wednesday.

It was the first time in many months that a PA official had expressed willingness to delay the statehood bid. The official said that the PA would leadership would discuss the possibility of postponing the move in return for American and international guarantees that Israel will refrain from "creating new facts on the ground" in the coming months.

He said that Abbas has called a meeting of the PLO Executive Committee and Fatah Central Committee to brief them on the outcome of a visit to Washington this week by Saeb Erekat and Nabil Abu Rudaineh.
