Former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman released a statement Monday afternoon in response to comments made by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon concerning the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the opening of the United Nations General Assembly being held in New York.

"As the fires in the Middle East continue to destabilize Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya - among others - the last thing the international community needs to deal with is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," Liberman said.

The former minister went on to say, "If the world insists on bringing about a resolution to the conflict, the only way forward is with Mahmoud Abbas's resignation from head of the Palestinian Authority, who only incites and encourages terrorism,  for the benefit of all those interested in a final settlement."
