UN vote for Palestine to 'destroy everything'

Says Israel

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman yesterday warned that United Nations' recognition of a unilaterally-declared Palestinian state would "destroy everything" the sides had achieved so far.
"It will destroy everything we have accomplished to date," he told reporters at a press conference with visiting Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman.
"It will be a really bad decision that will do very bad damage to our relations with the Palestinians and to the situation in the region," he said.
Palestinians have pledged to seek UN recognition of their independent state within the 1967 borders and with east Jerusalem as its capital in a move widely expected to take place in September.
Israel is fiercely opposed to such a move, arguing that negotiations are the only way to end the conflict and establish a Palestinian state.
