Erekat: Settlement plans destroying 2-state solution

The Palestinian Authority accused Israel of attempting to destroy the two-state solution on Friday, after the government approved plans for new building in the West Bank in response to the UN vote to recognize Palestine as a non-member observer state.
"While the Palestinians are doing everything possible to keep the two-state solution alive, including with our vote in the United Nations, yesterday, the Israeli government is doing everything possible to destroy it," Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said in response to the new settlement housing plans.
