Livni: Abbas needs to prove he is a partner for peace
April 5, 2014 20:44

Israel's chief negotiator Tzipi Livni stressed on Saturday that she was planning to continue her diplomatic mission to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians despite the major stumbling blocks that emerged this week, bringing talks to a halt.

"I don't intend to give up the struggle for an accord," said the justice minister on Channel 2's "Meet the Press".

While Livni blasted the Palestinians, calling their application to more than a dozen international organizations and treaties "a blatant violation," she expressed her interest in changing the current status quo and salvaging the floundering talks.

Livni called on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to "prove that he is a partner" for peace.

"We are in a crisis," she said. "What happened in the last week will need to be repaired."
