Israel is expected to submit a document to the UN Security Council that explains reasons why the Palestinians are not ready to establish a state, Israel Radio reported Sunday, including that the Palestinians have failed to hold national or local elections.

According to the Israel Radio, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman instructed the Foreign Ministry's legal department to draft the report.

The Foreign Ministry will send envoys in the coming days to Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Colombia, in order to convince those countries to vote against accepting the Palestinian state as the UN's newest member.
