Israel warns it will not respect the agreement if the Palestinians are going to the UN

A week after sending a letter to U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, demanding an urgent meeting of the International Quartet to push Israelis and Palestinians to resume peace negotiations, the European diplomat, Catherine Ashton, meets today in Jerusalem and Ramallah with the harsh reality. A reality that calls for the resumption of dialogue.

This morning in Jerusalem, Israeli Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has warned of the consequences of the Palestinian plan to attend the UN General Assembly to seek recognition of their state in September. "This unilateral action in the UN is the end of the Oslo Accords because it is a violation of all agreements signed so far. In that case, Israel will not feel committed to the agreements signed with the Palestinians over the past 18 years".
