Israel's ambassador to the United Nations says he is making huge efforts to convince his colleagues from around the world not to support the Palestinian position in the UN.
In a report to be published in Maariv on Friday, Ron Prosor explained why he believes the UN bid will not bring an independent Palestinian state but will bring serious security deterioration.
The ambassador stressed that he held more than 70 meetings with UN ambassadors in recent weeks. The meetings were direct and personal in order to convince them of the Israeli position.
Prosor stressed that efforts will continue until the last moment to convince a number of countries to vote against the Palestinian bid. The only solution comes from direct negotiations, he says.
