Senior Fatah official Nabil Sha'ath on Saturday told London-based Al-Hayat that the Palestinians are "determined to turn to the UN to demand recognition of a Palestinian state," despite US announcements that it intends to veto the move in the United Nations Security Council.

In remarks published by Al-Hayat, Sha'ath also said the Palestinians are considering resorting to other steps at the UN "if the US thwarts the proposed resolution," however he declined to reveal what the steps will include.

He explained that "We have many options we can take, but we will not disclose them now. We do not want to give the Israelis the possibility to prepare for a fight against us at the United Nations."
