Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman slammed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday, saying Abbas failed as a PA leader.

Speaking to students at the Ariel University Center, Liberman asserted that Abbas has lost control of the Palestinian street, as the Palestinians are split between Gaza in Hamas and Fatah in the West Bank.

The foreign minister also slammed the Palestinian UN bid for a non-member state status, saying it crosses a red line and is "not a diplomatic alternative to [peace] talks."

He accused Abbas of trying to save himself, not his people, with the Palestinian UN statehood bid.
