Rivlin: PA's UN upgrade will lead to diplomatic deterioration
Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin warned against a sharp diplomatic deterioration following the Palestinians' UN bid. "This pressure will not do any good because they cannot replace dialogue and recognition of Israel."


He further added, "The General Assembly statement has no legal bearing. It was meant to create provocation and does nothing to advance relations between the sides." (Moran Azulay)
