American Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro said that the US will continue to push for renewed peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians even after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas petitions the international body for statehood recognition, Israel Radio reported Monday.

Speaking with a group of haredi (ultra-Orthodox) students, US ambassador Shapiro said that the US was against unilateral moves by either the Palestinians or the Israelis - which include the UN bid and Israeli threats to cut funds and tax transfers to the Palestinian Authority following that move.

Shapiro also stressed that security cooperation between Israel and the Palestinian Authority was necessary and important for both sides, Israel Radio said.
