The declaration made by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas request the UN declare a Palestinian state is an idle threat," Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said Saturday.

"This is a bluff aimed at pressuring Israel," Ayalon explained during a cultural event in Modi'in. "This shows that there is no real intention to resolve the Palestinian conflict," Ayalon continued.
