Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman is "killing the peace process," PA President Mahmoud Abbas retorted Wednesday in response to comments made by Liberman a day earlier blaming the Abbas for the failure of the peace process. Abbas also renewed the Palestinan threat to take the issue of statehood to the United Nations.

“Liberman’s statements reveal a mentality interested in killing the peace process and fueling conflict and wars,” the PA's official news agency Wafa quoted Abbas's spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh as saying.

Abbas, speaking at  Al-Najah National University in Nablus, warned of the diplomatic repercussions of a continued stalemate in peace talks with Israel.
