Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riad al-Malki.

(Worthy News) - Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riad al-Malki said Tuesday that a French diplomatic bid to advance a United Nations resolution to restart the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians has been abandoned by the Elysee Palace in wake of pressure by Israel and the U.S., Ha'aretz reported.

Senior Palestinian officials in Ramallah who spoke with Haaretz said that al-Malki's comments were not entirely accurate, and that it was more his analysis of the updates he had received on the matter than information based on an official decision by the French.

Al-Maliki told the Voice of Palestine radio station in an interview Tuesday said that "the French initiative to put forward a UN Security Council resolution based on the two-state solution and renewing peace talks is no longer topping the agenda of French leadership and they have withdrawn [from the idea]."
