Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon that in light of the Palestinian Authority's decision "to go the way of unilateralism, we will need to consider our moves," in an interview with Israel Radio Monday.

The PA's United Nations statehood bid "is in violation of the Oslo Accords and we'll need to weigh what to do," Ya'alon added.

Referring to the possibility of renewed negotiations, he said, "We have been waiting for the Palestinian side of the table since the beginning of the government's tenure - without preconditions." In July, the minister added, "the United States put forth an offer with a framework for negotiations. We responded positively and the Palestinians declined."
