Liberman: Deal Almost Closed When PA Pulled Out

“Israel was very close to a package deal with the Palestinians, a complicated deal that was about to be sent to the cabinet for a vote,” Liberman said. “But at the last minute the Palestinians went back on their commitments and applied for national standing on 15 UN panels,” he said.
