On Thursday, as the United Nations General Assembly approved an upgraded U.N. status for the Palestinian Authority, Piers Morgan sat down with Chief Palestinian Negotiator Saeb Erakat who explained why the U.N. status upgrade is so important to Palestinians. "It's about statehood," said Erakat. "It's about Palestine joining the group of nations."
"We came to the United Nations not to confront the U.S. and not to isolate Israel or to discriminate Israel. We came to preserve the two-state solution."
Ron Prosor, Israeli Ambassador to the U.N, also joined Morgan on Thursday to condemn the U.N. vote granting recognition of Palestine as a nonmember observer state. "What happened today shows that we need more solutions than resolutions because the only way forward are direct negotiations."
"What the Palestinians did today basically doesn't change anything for Palestinians on the ground tomorrow. Young people will stand up, more expectations, higher frustrations."
