Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday night that a Palestinian state is "legitimate" and asked the Palestinians to return to the negotiation table without preconditions, Army Radio reported.

"The compromise will be painful, but I do not believe that it is impossible," the defense minister said, according to the report.

He also said that Israel had nothing to do with the overhauling changes in the Middle East but that the fall of Hosni Mubarak was unfortunate, the report said.
