Avigdor Liberman said Sunday that he always supported Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Bar-Ilan Speech accepting a two-state solution, and that the speech would also be the principle of the next government.

Continuing his months-long attack against Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, however, the former foreign minister said Israel is content waiting for a suitable partner on the Palestinian side. "We're willing to wait," he told Israel Radio.

"We need to explain to the world that if there is a peace refusenik, it is [Abbas]," Liberman added, saying a number of times that the current government, in which he sat, knew very well how to stand up to international diplomatic pressure.
