PA at UN: Israel Avoiding Two-State Solution

Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian Authority observer at the United Nations, accused Israel, Monday, of thwarting the two-state solution for peace with Israel, according to the Associated Press.

In a letter to the U.N. Security Council, he wrote, Israel's "illegal and destructive" plans for building new settlements emphasize "the dubious nature" of its readiness for diplomatic negotiations.
