Monday September 15, 2014 7:46 PM, IANS

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Monday said he will soon head to the UN Security Council to debate a solution to the Palestinian cause.

Abbas told a rally held in the northern West Bank city of Jenin via phone that "we will head to the Security Council to present our cause and find a solution to our people who seek freedom and a state with east Jerusalem as its capital", Xinhua reported.

Abbas did not give a specific date for applying to the UN Security Council, however, the Palestinian leadership has recently presented to the US a political plan that schedules a gradual end of the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.

Earlier, Palestinian officials had declared that if the US rejected the Palestinian political plan, they would certainly head to the UN Security Council and then join all the international agencies and treaties.

"We will go to the UN with full hope that the just world would stand by our side. We will go to the UN because we are sticking to our rights and achieving our goals," Abbas told the rally in Jenin.

"It is true that many will stand against us and express a sort of stubbornness, but if this goes on, we will then go and join all the international agencies and treaties," he added.
