UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The Palestinians are condemning Israel for announcing plans for new settlement construction immediately after the U.N. recognized the state of Palestine and are demanding urgent international action to stop what he called "this latest Israeli provocation."
Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour said in letters sent late Monday to the secretary-general, Security Council and General Assembly that at the same time that Palestinian leaders reaffirmed their readiness to resume peace negotiations, "Israel continues to flagrantly pursue its illegal policies and practices."
He appealed to the international community, including the U.N. Security Council, to act urgently to salvage the internationally-backed goal of two states living side by side in peace, which was reaffirmed in last Thursday's General Assembly resolution raising the Palestinians' U.N. status to a nonmember observer state.
