This may not be entirely true, or his remarks have been misquoted:

The Palestinian Authority on Wednesday formally rejected an invitation to a US-led peace conference in Bahrain next month, where Washington is expected to unveil the economic aspects of its long-awaited Middle East peace plan.

The meeting is planned for June 25-26 in the capital city of Manama. The PA had previously indicated that it would not participate in the event, but had not officially refused.
This announcement came 3 days after Erekat's statement. Makes me wonder what changed between those two statements.
