US Senator Lindsey Graham, speaking in Jerusalem on Wednesday, said that a Palestinian state needs to come about in a way that ensures the security of Israel.

Addressing Western countries who are considering supporting an expected United Nations resolution in September recognizing Palestinian statehood, Graham said, "You're doing more damage than you are doing good."

A Palestinian state cannot come about from a UN resolution, Graham added, it must come from the people living in the region.

The senior US senator expressed reservations about the Palestinian leadership, saying, "Who runs the Palestinian state. Wouldn't you want to know that?"
