PA to consult with Arab powers over US peace role

The PA official said that the Palestinians expected the Arab ministers to convene in Cairo as early as next week.

The Egyptian president will ask Abbas to delay his decision to seek international UN recognition of a Palestinian state so as to give the US administration another chance to persuade Israel to halt settlement construction, the official said.

PA negotiator Nabil Sha’ath said that in light of the American announcement the PA leadership would discuss the possibility of asking the UN Security Council to recognize an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders.
