RAMALLAH, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- A Palestinian official denied on Monday the withdrawal of a draft resolution presented to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) against the United States peace plan, known as "the Deal of the Century."

Saeb Erekat, secretary general of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee, said in a press statement that the reports on withdrawing the draft resolution "are untrue and baseless."

The draft resolution against the U.S. peace plan was presented for a vote in the UNSC.

"The draft resolution was distributed and still under discussion. Once the final form is done, the draft will be presented to the security council for voting," said Erekat.

On Tuesday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will address the UNSC at 5:00 p.m. local time in Israel.

Majdi el-Khaldi, an aide to Abbas for diplomatic affairs, told "Voice of Palestine" Radio that Abbas' speech will basically focus on the Palestinian visions for peace in the Middle East. Enditem
