Saeb Erekat, member of the PLO Executive Committee and Head of the PLO Negotiations Affairs Department: "...By recognizing Palestine and supporting our initiative to put a deadline to end the Israeli occupation, Europe would not be “encouraging Palestinians to bypass negotiations,” but exactly the opposite: It would send a strong message of commitment to the international law and diplomacy as the only way to move forward, as well as respect for the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination. The first step in order to save the two-state solution is to effectively recognize two-states, not only one."
