The US Administration on Monday reiterated its opposition to the Palestinian Authority’s plan to petition the UN in September for recognition of a Palestinian on the pre-1967 lines.

The US stance was relayed to the PA during a meeting in Jericho between Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat and US special Middle East envoy David Hale and US Consul General in Jerusalem Daniel Rubenstein.

According to Erekat, the US officials made it clear that Washington’s preferred option remains the resumption of peace talks with Israel on the basis of President Barack Obama’s two-state vision.

Erekat said that he told the US officials that the PA leadership’s effort to achieve membership of a Palestinian state in the UN does not contradict in any way with efforts to resume the peace process.
