Israel slams French peace plan as encouraging Palestinian intransigence

Israel said on Friday that it will reject any French initiative to re-start peace negotiations with the Palestinians.

Jerusalem reacted shortly after French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said that his government will recognize a Palestinian state if its efforts in coming weeks to try to break the deadlock between Israelis and Palestinians fail.

"France will engage in the coming weeks in the preparation of an international conference bringing together the parties and their main partners, American, European, Arab, notably to preserve and make happen the solution of two states," he said.
