"President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority said yesterday that he was going to the United Nations this month to seek membership for a state of Palestine, not instead of negotiations with Israel but in addition to them. His goal, he said, was for a Palestinian state and Israel to live in peace and security next to each other. Even after any UN recognition, he said, his hope is to negotiate with Israel." (09/06/11)
