Prosor: True friends of Palestine support negotiations

September 19, 2011 18:31

Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor wrote in an Los Angeles Times op-ed "True friends of the Palestinians in the international community should urge them to return immediately to direct talks with Israel" and away from what he described as a "premature, fanciful declaration for an imaginary state."

Prosor wrote that the "basic premise of the Palestinian's UN bid is...give us everything without negotiation, and then we will negotiate about the rest," and said that "No one but Israelis and Palestinians, on their own, at the table, can face the major challenges that must be addressed if peace is to be achieved."

The ambassador to the UN said the Palestinian resolution was  "recipe for instability," and could lead to violence in an "already fragile region."
