Erekat Urges International Community to Recognize Palestine

(MENAFN - QNA) Chief Palestinian negotiator and PLO executive committee member, Saeb Erekat, called on countries that have not recognized a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital to do so in compliance with international law and the U.N. General Assembly resolution in 2012 that reiterated the legal status of Palestine as a non-member observer state.

Erekat made the remarks on Friday during separate meetings with an IMF delegation led by Christoph Duenwald, deputy chief for the Middle Eastern and Central Asian division; Miguel Angel Moratinos, former Spanish foreign minister; and a delegation from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

The Palestinian official urged all international organizations, notably the United Nations and internal organizations to deal with Palestine as a state under Israeli occupation, especially since Palestine had become a high contracting party to the Geneva Convention of 1949.
