PLO Negotiator: Palestinian Papers 'Theater'

Sunday, 23 Jan 2011 06:53 PM

PLO chief negotiator Saeb Erekat reacted on Sunday to the Al-Jazeera TV network's release of hundreds of documents concerning the peace talks between Palestinians and Israelis and emphatically denied that the Palestinian Authority had agreed to make far-reaching concessions on Jerusalem.

Erekat also criticized Al-Jazeera for reporting on the documents.

“This is a theater,” he said. “This is part of a campaign targeting President Mahmoud Abbas and the PA at a time when we are going to the UN Security Council regarding the settlements.”

Erekat confirmed, however, that the Palestinians and Israelis had talked about land swaps in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

“Yes, we talked about land swaps,” he told Al-Jazeera. “[Former prime minister Ehud] Olmert presented us with a map about the land swap. The swap is part of international law.”
