Interior Minister Eli Yishai said on Thursday that Israel will never acknowledge a Palestinian state that could be a front line for Iran.

He added that Palestinian statehood recognition could only be achieved through negotiations between Jerusalem and Ramallah, talks that will assure Israel's future and security.

Yishai also indicated that nothing will change following the approval of the Palestinian Authority as a non-member observer state in the UN General Assembly, "When the celebrations in Ramallah subside, the Palestinians will wake up to the same reality they have been waking up to so far."
