PA: If we don't get assurances on prisoners release in 24 hours, we'll turn to the UN
RAMALLAH - The Palestinian leadership has decided Monday to relaunch its recognition campaign to UN agencies if it does not get assurances from US Secretary of State John Kerry on the release of the last group of prisoners within 24 hours, a Palestinian MP told AFP.

 

"If Kerry doesn't provide a clear answer on the release of the 30 prisoners, (the Palestinian leadership) will initiate steps for accession to UN organizations," said the independent MP Mustafa Barghouthi, who participated in a meeting on Monday evening with PA President Mahmoud Abbas. (AFP)
