BRUSSELS - Envoys from the quartet of Middle East negotiators will meet on Sunday in a last-ditch push to relaunch Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and avert a showdown over Palestinian statehood at the UN, an EU diplomat said on Saturday.

The meeting in New York will come two days after President Mahmoud Abbas said he would demand full membership of the United Nations for a Palestinian state when he goes to the UN General Assembly next week, setting up a diplomatic clash with Israel and the United States.

"Envoys are meeting on Sunday in New York," the diplomat said.

The efforts of the quartet - which groups the European Union, the United States, Russia and the UN - are part of an intense international diplomatic push in recent weeks aimed at persuading the Palestinians to drop their UN plans.
