Israel is ready to return to negotiations with the Palestinian Authority if it prevents the Palestinian statehood bid in the United Nations this September, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said on Wednesday.

"The Israeli government is ready to discuss all of the details with the Palestinians as long as they don't go to the UN," Ayalon said in an interview with the Palestinian Ma'an television station.

The foreign minister also discussed the difference between the current Palestinian bid for statehood and the 1947 UN Resolution 181 which led to the creation of Israel, speaking in the Ma'an interview. In 1947, he explained, the UN called for the creation of two states, not just one. The Palestinian plan, he added, is a unilateral move.
