In the Tel Aviv forum, Dagan also complained that Israel had failed to put forward a peace initiative with the Palestinians and that it had foolishly ignored the Saudi peace initiative, which promised full diplomatic relations in exchange for a return to the 1967 lines. With Palestinians geared up to push through a declaration in the UN General Assembly recognizing a Palestinian along the 1949 armistice lines, Dagan worried that Israel would soon be pushed into a diplomatic corner.
