The head of Meretz Zehava Gal-On said on Saturday that the Palestinians have lost trust in Prime Minister Netanyahu as a partner for peace.

Speaking in response to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's speech at the UN general assembly, Gal-On said that the Palestinians will not return to peace talks without a decided upon direction of the talks and a timeline for the establishment of the Palestinian state.

Gal-On continued and said that Abbas's speech reflects the sentiment among the Palestinians that peace is far-off, especially with Netanyahu in power. She then accused Netanyahu of "continuing to manage the conflict instead of solve the conflict."

"Meretz supports the international efforts of Abbas to bring an end the the occupation and to win recognition in the UN as an independent state," she said.
