    GAZA, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- Islamic Hamas movement on Saturday criticized the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) for seeking international recognition of state's borders.

    "The Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO) trend to border demarcation is only an address of political failure that the PNA experiences," said Salah al-Bardaweel, a senior Hamas official.

    "The international community is unserious in dealing with this proposal and the U.S. administration colludes with Israel and can't even press it to stop settlement," al-Bardaweel added.

    On Friday, chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said the PLO will resort to the UN Security Council to get a recognition of the Palestinian statehood's borders. The move is part of a campaign the PNA had started to obtain international recognition of the statehood after peace negotiations with Israel had come to a stop.

    Al-Bardaweel said his movement, which believes in destroying Israel, had once accepted a national Palestinian proposal for having a statehood in Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem "but without recognizing Israel in exchange."

    "We don't believe in the two-state solution and don't believe in the other state (Israel) which was created on a Palestinian land, so defining the borders in a meaningless operation and has no reality on the ground," al-Bardaweel continued.
