Palestinian Chief Negotiator Saeb Erakat warned on Friday that the Palestinian Authority was founded to establish the institutions for a Palestinian state, "not to keep Israel as a source of authority forever."

If Israel insists on maintaining control, he said, the Palestinian Authority "cannot stand — it's irrelevant," and he indicated it might be dissolved.Erekat was speaking during a debate with Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor in New York.
