Israel is weighing the possibility of cancelling the landmark Oslo accords with the Palestinians in response to their plan to seek United Nations membership, the daily Haaretz said on Monday.

Citing unnamed Israeli officials, the newspaper reported that Yaakov Amidror, the head of Israel's National Security Council (NSC), was examining the potential cancellation as one of a number of responses to the UN bid.

Israel has fiercely opposed the Palestinian plan to seek UN membership for a state on the lines that existed before the 1967 Six Day War, including the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem.

And Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman warned last month the 1993 Oslo Accords that created the Palestinian Authority, and all agreements since, would effectively be cancelled by UN recognition of a Palestinian state.
