US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro said the United States was not interested in seeing a third Intifada, and that therefore it was very important that the United States continues supporting the Palestinian Authority.

Several US lawmakers have called on the US to cut funding of the Palestinian Authority - which received upwards of $500 million last year in aid - following their application for statehood recognition at the UN.Shapiro told Channel 1 news that it was very important, and commonly agreed in the international community, that peace talks must be renewed between Israelis and Palestinians.
