Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Thursday expressed doubt as to the effectiveness of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's decision to speak at the upcoming UN General Assembly ahead of an expected vote on recognition of a Palestinian state by the world body.

"I am fine with him going, but he will not affect any real change," Livni stated in an interview with Israel Radio.

"To change things you must act and not just give a speech," she added, reiterating her position that the government must act to renew negotiations with the Palestinians and the failure to do so has led to the Palestinian UN bid
