Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday blamed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for destroying the peace process by refusing to negotiate.

During an interview Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, Netanyahu said that he believed the Palestinians want a state, but they have to give peace in return.

“What they’re trying to do in the United Nations is to get a state without giving Israel peace…and I think that’s wrong,” he told host David Gregory.
