Turkey has pledged to help the Palestinians enlist additional nations to support their bid for statehood in the United Nations this September, PA negotiator Saeb Erekat said on Friday, according to Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, along with Erekat, is currently in Turkey for meetings with Turkish leaders. "Turkey will help us in getting more of the nations to recognize the Palestinian state," Ma'an quoted Erekat as saying.

Erekat also denied reports that the PA is considering accepting less than a full settlement freeze before re-entering negotiations with Israel, calling the reports "a lie," according to Ma'an.
