RAMALLAH, West Bank, March 6 (UPI) -- Palestinian officials warned Thursday President Mahmoud Abbas should not accept an agreement with Israel unsupported by his people.

The officials, who spoke anonymously, said that would be a "grave mistake," the Jerusalem Post reported.

Abbas is scheduled to meet March 17 with U.S. President Barack Obama in Washington. Secretary of State John Kerry has been working with Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to secure an agreement that would produce an autonomous Palestinian state.

The officials told the Post Kerry has not given negotiators on both sides a proposed framework agreement but the Palestinian daily al-Quds reported Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, who is currently in Washington, and Netanyahu had received copies of an agreement.
