Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's remarks Monday criticizing Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas were "deeply troubling," according to United Nations spokesman Richard Miron. Miron, spokesman for UN Special Envoy for the Peace Process Robert Serry, told the PA-based Ma'an news agency that Lieberman's statement "appears to be an attempt to delegitimize President Abbas."
