Qabaha: UN option should be part of comprehensive strategy

[ 02/08/2011 – 01:14 PM ]

NABLUS, (PIC)– Former minister Wasfi Qabaha has said that asking the UN to recognize a Palestinian state should be part of a comprehensive Palestinian strategy in which all components of the society take part.

He said in a statement from his Israeli jail that going to the UN while the state of division was not yet resolved would pose as a point of weakness.

The US and Israel would exploit the Palestinian division to abort any international attempt to support the Palestinian cause, the ex-minister said.

Qabaha said that recognizing the Palestinian state is a legitimate right, and added that any state with partial sovereignty was rejected by the Palestinian people.

Qabaha’s statements were voiced by researcher Ahmed Al-Beitawi, from the Tadamun center for human rights, who visited Qabaha in his jail a couple of days ago.
