Erekat: Joining 15 Int'l Conventions 'A Modest Success'


Chief negotiator Saeb Erekat of the Palestinian Authority (PA) told senior members of the Fatah organization, Thursday evening in Ramallah, that the PA's application to 15 international conventions is a "modest beginning", according to Kol Yisrael government radio.

Doctor Erekat said only the carrying out of the fourth scheduled release of security prisoners will stop the PA from applying for the rest of the international bodies. He said PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has informed Secretary of State John Kerry that he won't retreat from the application process, even if it means his death.
