The Palestinian Authority will start negotiations with officials from the United Nations Security Council on a draft resolution demanding that Israel stop settlement construction in the West Bank, said PA Ambassador Riyad Mansour, reported Reuters Thursday.

Mansour met  with UK Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant in New York to discuss a plan to meet with the members of the panel’s 15 member governments. Mansour said he hoped the council would take action before the end of November, Reuters reported.

“With the intensification of the settlement activity, particularly in Jerusalem, we are coming to the Security Council to request action to bring Israel into compliance with international law,” Mansour was quoted as saying.
