In this handout image supplied by the Palestinian Press Office (PPO), Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (R) meets with U.S. envoy Dennis Ross on September 20, 2011 in New York City. President Abbas will formally submit the application for Palestinian statehood to the 66th United Nations General Assembly in New York on September 20th. The Palestinians and the Israelis are taking part in global diplomatic lobbying to win support for their differing positions on statehood. The Palestinian bid arises from two decades of on-and-off peace talks that have failed to produce a deal. The ultimate goal of the Palestinian Authority is to end Israeli occupation and to establish a sovereign and independent state on the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital.
