Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Wednesday addressed the Palestinian initiative to seek statehood in the United Nations in September, saying that Israel is powerless to prevent it.

"Israel will no succeed to prevent recognition of a Palestinian state in the [UN] General Assembly, driven by an automatic Arab majority," Ayalon said in a speech at Tel Aviv University.

"But such a decision will not be taken in the Security Council," he added, "where there is a majority of responsible countries."

Regarding the responsibility of other countries to the peace process, Ayalon said that the United State, Russia, the European Union and several other countries are all committed to the Oslo Accords, which demand a diplomatic process involving dialogue.
