Palestinian officials say Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas plans to tell President Barack Obama today that he will deliver a letter to the U.N. Security Council seeking statehood but will not expect the United Nations to act immediately, potentially averting a showdown on Palestinian statehood at the U.N. on Friday.
The letter, which Abbas would deliver sometime before he leaves the U.S. on Friday, would continue to put pressure on Obama, Israel and the U.N. to seek resolution on Palestinian statehood.
