RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The PLO's ruling body met Thursday and affirmed the need to go to the UN Security Council for a resolution against Israeli settlement building on Palestinian land.
The PLO Executive Committee stressed the State of Palestine's commitment to the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and all UN charters, a statement after the meeting, headed by President Mahmoud Abbas, said.
The group considered a detailed report on the implementation of the UN resolution accepted Palestine as a non-member state on Nov. 29.
It includes concrete steps on accession to international treaties and joining other international bodies, the PLO said, without elaborating.
The PLO will urgently convene a meeting of the Central Council, the second-tier leadership group in the body.
