WASHINGTON - The resignation of Palestinian negotiators this week from peace talks with Israel is a "pretext to exit the talks," Israel's ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.

Prosor called the move a strategic tactic— either to genuinely sabotage the talks, or to cajole more concessions from the Israeli government.

"Playing games is a no-no," Prosor said, especially in light of the murder of an Israeli soldier at the hands of a 16-year-old Palestinian in Afula.

He said the resignation obviously "wasn't a good sign," coming halfway through a nine-month commitment to talks by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Prosor was in Washington addressing dozens of US congressmen on Capitol Hill, attending the 2013 conference of the Israel Allies Foundation.
