Palestinian criticism for Netanyahu

Palestinian Economy Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh has said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu 's conditions for a Palestinian state make the peace process "a non-starter".

Mr Netanyahu announced that he supported a Palestinian state - but only if it has no army, no control of its air space and no way of smuggling in weapons.

He also demanded that a Palestinian state must recognise Israel as a Jewish nation.
