Statehood establishment by 2017: Erekat
RAMALLAH: The Palestinians’ chief peace negotiator has laid out in the clearest terms yet plans to establish an independent Palestinian state within three years, even if it means ignoring pleas from the United States not to push ahead.

Rights report sweeping: UAE
ABU DHABI: The UAE responded on Friday to a recent statement issued by Human Rights Watch about the treatment of foreign domestic workers in the country by saying that it had “drawn sweeping conclusions based on a small, unrepresentative sample.” The statement, issued by Amna Al Meheiri, director of the Human Rights department of the Foreign Ministry, notes that the HRW report misses the bigger picture: the UAE provides economic...

Queen sends her first tweet during museum visit
LONDON: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth sent her first ever tweet during a visit to a museum on Friday, signing it “Elizabeth R” — and even removing a glove to post it. The 88-year-old’s Twitter debut came during a visit to London’s Science Museum as she opened a new gallery dedicated to the history of communication and information. The queen has gamely tried to keep up with new technologies during her 62-year reign. She received...
