Israeli Defense Minister believes the UN resolution will not resolve conflict with the Palestinians

The Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, said the EU High Representative for Common Foreign and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, a UN resolution in favor of a Palestinian state will not help resolve the conflict Middle East. "We believe that the request to the Security Council and the United Nations General Assembly are both the wrong direction and are not productive," says a statement from Barak's office issued after its meeting today in Tel Aviv Ashton.

The Palestinians will go to the UN on Sept. 20 to request access a state of law, the resolution seeking to obtain international recognition of statehood even though there is no peace agreement with Israel that endorsement. This attempt to circumvent the frustration of two decades of negotiations have not led to a clear result, political independence.

Barak believes that there is no single "right direction" and is "to go directly to direct and unconditional negotiations." "That is what we prefer, but if not given, it is important to highlight that everyone involved in the text (the resolution) the importance of going to business quickly, without trying to crush the other with conditions," he adds.
