An Iranian lawmaker said Sunday that Palestinian-Israeli peace talks will not settle the existing problems of Palestine and the whole Middle East, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran's Parliament, told IRNA that peace talks between the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) and the Zionist leaders through the U.S. mediation will be another failure of Washington regarding the Palestinian issue.

Boroujerdi said the talks were a mock negotiation to settle the Middle East crisis.

During a massive rally on Friday to mark the Quds (Jerusalem) Day in Tehran, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas doesn't represent his people when he agreed to go for direct peace talks with Israel.

PNA on Saturday slammed Ahmadinejad over his remarks about the relaunching of direct peace talks with Israel.

Ahmadinejad "doesn't have the right to question the legitimacy of President Abbas," Palestinian presidency spokesman Nabil Abu Rdeineh said in a statement published by the Palestinian Wafa news agency.
