Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Wednesday evening that Israel did everything it could to advance a peace deal but that the ball was now in the Palestinians' hands.
Liberman was speaking at a gathering of Yisrael Beytenu supporters in Jerusalem.
The foreign minister said that Israel proved that it was ready to reach a final-status agreement with the Palestinians. "As much as Israel wanted to reach a deal, it's not happening," he said.
Liberman blasted Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for wanting a future Palestinian state to be "Judenrein."
