There is great doubt that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is interested in reaching a peace agreement with Israel, Finance Minister Yair Lapid said on Friday morning.

Lapid implied that his party, Yesh Atid, was disappointed by recent actions taken by the Palestinian Authority.



"When the list of PA demands was published, which appeared more like a tool to ruin the negotiations, the only people that were happy were the extreme right wing, who prefer to wait for the Massiah instead of finding a solution," Lapid said.

"Yesh Atid will continue to support the separation from the Palestinians, but Abbas needs to know that at this time his demands are working against him," he added.
