Lieberman: UN bid 'pushes both sides apart'

TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Wednesday that Palestine's bid to upgrade its status at the UN "pushes both sides further apart."

In New York, Lieberman said that "Even though the Palestinians are guaranteed a majority of the votes in their favor, in reality they will end up being the greatest losers."

"This move only enhances the dispute and pushes both sides further apart," he said, according to Israel's Ynet news site.
