Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Saturday said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu' s failure to engage in negotiations with the Palestinians led to the PA's decision to ask the United Nations to recognize a Palestinian State on September 20.

"The Palestinian decision is bad for Israel and only one person is responsible for this diplomatic failure - Netanyahu," Livni said in a statement. "Netanyahu's inability to understand the situation and his refusal to continue negotiations, which Kadima had been holding in keeping with Israel's best interests, are leading Israel to one of the most dangerous diplomatic failures in its history," she added.

"Rather than establishing a Palestinian state through an agreement with Israel, Netanyahu is causing the world to establish a state in opposition to Israel's position," Livni stated.

"Kadima reiterates its call to renew negotiations before September," she said.
