Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin on Sunday told UN Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro that "if someone tries to force facts on Israel, he will achieve the opposite."

Speaking on the Palestinian plan to seek UN recognition of statehood in September, Rivlin said, "Only Israelis will decided their own fate, via the Knesset, as they have done in regards to other political moves."
