The Arab League’s proposal for land swaps between Israel and a future Palestinian state has drawn contradictory reactions from Palestinian Authority officials in the West Bank.

The proposal was announced by Qatari Foreign Minister Hamad bin Jasim al-Thani following a meeting of an Arab League delegation with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Washington earlier this week.

The PA’s Saeb Erekat said in a statement published in English shortly after the announcement that the initiative reflected the Palestinian position in support of minor land swaps with Israel.

PA Foreign Minister Riyad Malki, who was part of the Arab delegation that met with Kerry, was also quoted as saying that the proposal had been made in coordination with the Palestinians.
