Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Israel is ready to engage in negotiations with the Palestinians, adding that efforts towards a unilateral declarations of Palestinians statehood delay the peace process instead of advancing it, Israel Radio reported Sunday.

Speaking to Italian media during his Rome visit, Netanyahu praised his counterpart Silvio Berlusconi's efforts to promote the peace process, and stressed the friendly relations between Israel and Italy.

In May, Berlusconi said that Italy would not recognize the unilateral declaration of the Palestinian state the Hamas-Fatah government is preparing for in September at the UN General Assembly.
