Palestinian Authority negotiator Nabil Shaath on Monday continued to express optimism that the Palestinian statehood bid at the United Nations Security Council would receive the backing of nine countries, despite the US's intent to veto the resolution.

Shaath told Ma'an News Agency on Monday that the nine countries include Gabon, Nigeria, Bosnia, Brazil, India, Lebanon, South Africa, China and Russia.

Shaath's comments come as PA President Mahmoud Abbas was scheduled to meet Tuesday with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in an attempt to lobby the country to support the Palestinian bid in the Security Council.
