NEW YORK (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says there is still time to find a solution to the diplomatic crisis over plans by the Palestinians to demand statehood rights at the U.N. this week.

Clinton tells reporters in New York that the U.S. is talking with all sides to defuse the standoff. Speaking Monday, on the eve of the annual U.N. General Assembly, Clinton says the week is young and there are still several days to seek compromise.

She is urging the Palestinians and Israelis to agree to new talks. And she repeated the U.S. position that the only path to a separate state for Palestinians is through negotiations with Israel.
