The Palestinian Authority overnight Friday said it will "reevaluate" the peace process with Israel after the US vetoed a UN resolution which condemned settlements beyond the Green Line as "illegal."

"We will reevaluate the entire negotiation process," top PLO official Yasser Abed Rabbo said. "The [US] decision was miserable and unbalanced.  It damages the credibility of the US government."

"The US veto does not serve the peace process and encourages Israel to continue constructing settlements and avoid its commitments in the peace process," aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Nabil Abu Rudeina said. "The veto will complicate matters in the Middle East."
