“No other solution has been proposed by the United States” to achieve peace and the establishment of a Palestinian state, senior Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) official Wassel Abu Yusef told AFP.
“The US administration is pushing to resume bilateral negotiations, even while it’s clear that these have failed throughout the last few years.”
The last round of talks broke down in April after nine months of fruitless US-brokered meetings which were overshadowed by persistent Israeli settlement building in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, lands the Palestinians want for a future state.
The Palestinians have been under intense pressure not to push forward with the Security Council resolution – including with alleged threats of cuts to US aid.
PLO secretary general Yasser Abed Rabbo had said last month that the text would be submitted by the end of October but that target date passed.
