Erekat to Present US with 'Timetable' for Judea-Samaria Pullout

Chief Palestinian Authority (PA) negotiator Saeb Erekat will present plans to US Secretary of State John Kerry with a timetable for Israel's pullout from Judea and Samaria, PA-affiliated sources told Lebanese news site Ya Libnan Tuesday. 

Erekat and PA "Intelligence Minister" Majid Faraj will hold a series of meetings with senior officials in Washington, the sources said, in which they will press the case for "two states for two peoples." The discussions with Kerry will focus on establishing “a timeframe for ending Israel’s occupation to be agreed as soon as possible and not after the end of this year”, said a Palestinian official familiar with the plan due to be presented.
