The Palestinians are ready to return to the negotiating table to discuss a viable two-state solution only if Israel is held responsible for its actions, head of the Palestinian mission to the UN Riyad Mansour said at the UN Security Council Tuesday.

Mansour blamed Israel for the stalling renewed peace talks, saying negotiations
Israel deadlocked because of its “relentless violations,” including settlement construction and mistreatment of Palestinian prisoners.

"A new process has been set in motion," Monsour, set off by the failure of the Madrid talks in 1991 and Oslo accords in 1993. Mansour said that the over 125 official recognitions of a Palestinian state point to the fact that it is time for Palestinians to constructing a functioning democratic state.
