Tibi: UN bid will change future negotiations

Nov. 28, 2012 9:09 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 5, 2012 10:19 P.M.)
NEW YORK (Ma'an) -- Knesset member Ahmad Tibi said Wednesday that the PLO's bid to upgrade its UN status will be successful, and will change future negotiations.

"It is still a long and hard way, but it is becoming shorter and the world will witness the birth of the state of Palestine in the United Nations," Tibi told Ma'an in New York, where he joined a Palestinian delegation at the UN.

"The future political situation will be completely different for (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu, and even if there will be rounds of negotiations, Netanyahu will not meet with President Abu Mazen (Abbas) to take photos only," Tibi added.

Tibi said the UN vote would be a defining moment in the history of the Palestinian people.

President Mahmoud Abbas invited the Israeli MK to join the Palestinian delegation at the UN in New York.

The delegation also includes PLO Secretary-General Yasser Abed Rabbo, negotiator Saeb Erekat and Fatah Central Committee Member Nabil Shaath.
