, WASHINGTON, Oct 24 – Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said, in an interview published Saturday, that his government was determined to complete building a structure of a future Palestinian state by 2011.

"We’ve committed ourselves to a path of completing the task of institution building," he told The Washington Post.

He said the institution building meant "the capacity to govern ourselves effectively in all spheres of government within two years."

Asked if Palestinians should declare an independent state in 2011, Fayyad said: "I said this will be the program of the Palestinian government — it will commit itself to deliver the state in terms of capacity within two years."
