"Attracting the largest international support to recognize the Palestinian state is a new stage in the progressed Palestinian struggle and in the conflict with Israel," Jarar said, adding "but this stage needs lots of efforts in order to achieve the expected success."

However, the United States, the sponsor of the peace talks, said that declaring a Palestinian state will be a unilateral Palestinian action.

Meanwhile, Khaleda Jarar, a Palestinian lawmaker and leader of the Popular Front to Liberate Palestine (PFLP), told Xinhua that the Palestinian leadership has to preview first of all the current political situation, including the peace process and the Palestinian internal affairs.

"We believe that there is a strong link between the Palestinian efforts to get rid of the Israeli occupation and achieving the internal Palestinian reconciliation, mainly between Fatah and Hamas, because this split has weakened the Palestinian efforts," Jarar said.

The internal rift and split between the two big rivals began when Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip by force in June 2007. Hamas and Fatah have so far failed to reconcile and end their political split.
