Saeb Erekat: Palestine to become official member of ICC in March

'Palestine' will become an official member of the ICC in early March, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said on Friday.

The recent vote at the UN was a clear "message" to Washington, Erekat said, even as the Palestinians were "aware" the resolution would not pass.
