The Foreign Ministry on Monday sent a cable to its embassies abroad instructing its diplomats to thwart Palestinian moves to seek unilateral recognition of statehood particularly at the UN, according to diplomatic sources.

“There is no substitute for direct negotiations,” said Foreign Ministry Hebrew spokesman Yossi Levy.

Establishing a Palestinian state is not like asking people to mark a favorite page on Facebook, he said.

He added that it was in the Palestinians best interest to talk with Israel instead of “trying to inflame” the international arena.
